(Reuters) - The Biden administration on Thursday set a goal to cut the cost of solar energy by 60% over the next decade as part of an ambitious plan to decarbonize the United States’ power sector by 2035.

Great to see these targets being set, but even more important is seeing immediate action. Goals a decade from now will have no bearing on the politicians who are the ones setting them today, since they'll be out of office-- so Biden must pair these pledges with tangible and immediate actions that put that ball into motion. Thankfully, it does seem to be overall that is the case with his energy moves thus far-- would you agree, Harun?

How much cheaper is solar predicted to be in a decade sans more government help? Does anybody know? I was under the impression that it was on track to be significantly cheaper anyhow.
