Austin Energy is once again leading the USA with the lowest price per kWh from solar power. Intersect Power and Austin Energy announced a 150MW ac solar power purchase agreement that seems to range between 2.35-2.725/kWh, and could be as low as 2.1/kWh.

When this project comes online in 2020, Austin Energy will be getting 51% of its electricity from renewable electricity sources.
