Module prices will stay at current low levels, roughly Rs.24-26 for megawatt orders, roughly Rs.30 for container quantities and roughly Rs.32-36 for small orders. Manufacturers prefer to operate their production lines at full capacity (and full employment), even if they are selling at breakeven or less. As the year progresses, these low prices will apply to higher and higher efficiency modules. Differentiated modules — those with integrated electronics, simplified installation technology or 20 percent+ efficiency — will command higher price points and margins simply because they provide more value to installers and homeowners.
