Combining The 5 Best Solar Technologies

Monday, October 27th, 2008

I know there is a lot of red tape and patents that would make this impossible in the near future, but what if we could combine the 5 most effective solar technologies in the world and create a super solar collector that would be able to take care of our energy needs? I know it kinda sounds like Captain Planet, but I don’t think its too far out of reach. A few criteria have been taken into consideration. The super solar cell must be efficient, drive the cost down, and solve the problem of solar power at night. I know its a long shot, but here are my five picks.

1. In terms of the shape of the cell, I think Solyndra has it right in making cylindrical solar cells. They don’t have to be mounted at an angle. They can be mounted flat which saves installation costs and makes them more durable read more »
