Solar panels as inexpensive as paint? Mon, 13 May 2013 10:36:36 EDT Researchers are helping develop a new generation of photovoltaic cells that produce more power and cost less to manufacture than what's available today.
This blog is maintained by the staff of SOLAR TODAY, an award-winning magazine published by the American Solar Energy Society, a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the use of solar energy, energy efficiency, and other sustainable technologies in the United States.
The SOLAR TODAY Blog is a discussion forum and a medium for immediate news. The blog does NOT compete with the Associated Press, nor is it a venue for unedited press releases. We post an item here when it’s important to the renewable energy community but doesn’t carry the kind of clout that would get it into a mainstream medium. We’ll also post a news analysis when it triggers some connections that wouldn’t be obvious to a mainstream reporter, editor or blogger.
