I just found this article, it is a couple months old, however has some very interesting information. It seems as if real solar is just around the corner. If we can continue to drive down the cost, there will be an explosion of solar. You will see house roofing shingles made out of solar material, awnings, you name it… There will be a mad rush, heck, combine it with Artificial Grass for your yard, and soon consumers will become energy producers instead of consumers.
A Silicon Valley start-up called Nanosolar shipped its first solar panels — priced at $1 a watt. That’s the price at which solar energy gets cheaper than coal. Curious that this story is not on every front page…
It’s official. Nanosolar, the CIGS thin-film solar panel aspirant which produced little but hype and broken promises, is done. Its assets are being auctioned off.
