by Brent Sauser

Solar cell technology is moving ahead in leaps and bounds.  The included video shows very promising work in the Silicon Valley to perfect transparent solar cells.  These creative scientists have managed to capture the ultraviolet and infrared light waves (that we don’t see) and convert them into power, leaving 90% of the window pane in visible glass.  Pretty impressive!  Think of the applications . . . . homes, skyscrapers, commercial/retail buildings, and countless handheld devices.  The future for solar is bright indeed!
