Solar Research

Solar research from NREL is pushing cell efficiency to 47%+ whereas the cells we are installing are at 20%. Of course, these cells would cost you 100x what you would pay for a good ‘ol off the shelf panel. These cells could be used to power satellites or deep space missions. The article talks about how this efficiency is achieved – the ‘inverted’ method. Fascinating read for solar geeks.
