    That is pretty cool. With the money and attention solar is getting, I bet we see a bunch more breakthroughs in the near future. That is one of the things that has me on the fence with the PV project.

    That is cool stuff right there. I think solar is just going to keep having breakthroughs for quite awhile. Eventually it will become a "no brainer". I look forward to that day.

    Ok, I know its weird, but I had a dream about this. Not this, but the idea that solar was going to have a shift to a new way of harvesting the Sun. I think its because I've been watching a lot of Netflix movies, particularly the B-movie Sci-fi flicks. But it begs the question: What will our owners do when we don't have to go to work every day, and can sit around drinking beer/box wine and dreaming up a new revolution?!!!

    As long as the man controls the watts and the mortgage, we will still be at work.
