Is solar power cost effective?

What makes solar energy cost effective. Therefore they are simple and efficient and the benefit from the large scale effects. The larger fields, the more cost effective up to around 20,000 m2. Also the heat storages, which level out the solar heat during some days are much more efficient and cost effective in large scale.
