As I have wrote previously here, here and here, retail solar grid parity has been achieved in some markets with a large expansion coming the next 3 years around the globe.

Also, Shayle Kann at Greentech Media has a great piece about grid parity and the pitfalls in how the term is used and cloudy expectations about achieving parity at both retail and wholesale pricing levels.
