Here Comes the Sun
Jack Uldrich: In yesterday's Wall Street Journal there was an informative article entitled "Solar Power Heats Up." It talked about how solar cells have not only become more efficient over the past fews years but, when combined with lower installation costs and a variety of tax breaks and rebates, the economics of solar cells have shifted in a way that favors consumers.
I don't really think this is news but I do think it is important to stay tuned to the work that Nanosys, Konarka, NanoSolar, Cypress and GE (and others) are doing in this field.
