The Solar America Initiative (SAI) concluded in 2009, but the activities that developed during its tenure were incorporated into the current portfolio of the Solar Energy Technologies Program. These activities are a vital part of the program's core efforts to make electricity from solar technologies more cost-competitive in the marketplace.
