Israel plugs in the sun

Abstract:
Orionsolar's modules look different than the average system, as they are supplied in long flexible sheets. The main ingredients are nano-particles of titanium dioxide, an ingredient commonly found in toothpaste. One 2-meter-long sheet would produce 160 watts of power per hour, and would cost no more than $200 to the consumer.

"Our dream is that one day a family in Africa can walk into their corner store, buy a solar sheet and install a system that will give them electricity the same day," Waimann emphasizes. "When our technology works, it will allow access to clean, cheap electricity for the billion people who don't have it now."
