Haha Paul clever! Thanks for your opinion. Guess we'll have to see where this PV goes!

Hi Kathy,

 

{read this in the voice of Ringo Starr}    "I've got a h'ole in me window."

 

I couldn't help it!  I suffer from these devilish comic thoughts --

Imagine taking a cartoon-ish cutout of the material and plastering it up on a store window... It would look like a jagged sharp edges break in the glass.

 

If the film is *both* durable & cheap it could have a multitude of applications. 

If it is _either_ expensive or fragile then it's a laboratory curiosity.

 

The Light is Green!

Looks like researchers are developing new solar film based on the structure of moth eyes. Who woulda thunk?

Hi Paul,

You are right, thin film is certainly less efficient per square foot and my first choice for my own home is a nice 245 watt monocrystalline module; but the technology that is right for me, may not be right for someone else.  If aesthetics, weight limitations or shade issues are primary concerns in the application, Uni-Solar may be the right solution.  It really depends on the situation.  I am not associated with Uni-Solar in any way - just thought Lance was looking for an aesthetic solution, and Uni-Solar has been out in the field for several years now and seems to be performing as advertised.

Rob, Tavac Energy
