Energy saving solar technology will be built into asphalt, paint and windows.
Ever wonder how much energy could be created by having solar technology embedded in our sidewalks, driveways, siding, paint, rooftops, and windows?
The list includes ‘thin-film’ solar cells, which are 100 times thinner than silicon-wafer cells used today, are cost-efficient and can be ‘printed’ and arranged on a flexible backing, on the sides of buildings, tinted windows, cell phones, laptops, cars, and even clothing.
In the next five years, solar energy will be an affordable option for you and your neighbors. Until now, the materials and the process of producing solar cells to convert into solar energy have been too costly for widespread adoption.
