Agree with U2..
Also Either/Or should follow a pattern :
…either + noun ..or + noun..
…either + verb ..or + verb..
…either + adjective ..or + adjective...

C for me.

Idiom: "either x or y". In the case of E, it is unclear what is 'x'.

I choose D.

I was originally leaning towards C as well but the sentence seems to say tha the forms of solar energy will be economically competitive now or in a few years. The "will be" in the sentence tells me that the forms of solar energy are not yet economically competitive.

D works for me because it states that forms of solar energy are either (a) already economically competitive or (b) will be in a few years.
