Solar dye: On a solar panel coming soon...
A new press release from Science Daily explains the positive potential of new and upcoming lightweight dyes that will hopefully be perfected soon enough to take the place of many of the old types of photovoltaic solar panels we still see in use today. While many solar installers in Phoenix and beyond pride themselves on using the most modern and up to date technology available in solar panels, the truth is that what’s available for many installers to use for consumers, while relatively cutting edge, simply isn’t on par with newer discoveries like dyes that can make use of solar energy, and solar panel “stickers” such as those we have blogged about in the past.
Modern advances in solar panels shouldn’t shake consumer confidence though. Think about other technologies, such as computers. Why, you can barely get a PC or a Mac out of the store and into the car without a better, newer model showing up in the display area of Best Buy before you leave the parking lot!
Science Daily tells us, “Solar power is an essential part of the green energy mix, but adoption has been limited in many parts of the world where government subsidies and financial incentives have not been in place. However, as part of a sustainable approach to electricity generation, it offers a clear view of a future in which domestic supply relies less and less on grid power systems or else provides a localised grid for remote places, particularly in sunny climes. Photovoltaic solar cells based on poly-crystalline silicon are the most commonly used devices, having first been used as space satellite technology back in the 1950s and 1960s.”
The reason consumers and homeowners who have already installed solar panels in Phoenix should not be downtrodden in light of this news is because it means the industry is moving and shaking–it means that the future where we shed our addiction to oil and start to use more renewable resources isn’t a fantasy anymore–it’s a real future with real innovators working on it–and it has real legs!
