Adventures in microsolar supported by microelectronics and MEMS techniques Sandia National Laboratories scientists have developed tiny glitter-sized photovoltaic cells that could revolutionize the way solar energy is collected and used. The tiny cells could turn a person into a walking solar battery charger if they were fastened to flexible substrates molded around unusual shapes, such as clothing. The solar particles, fabricated of crystalline silicon, hold the potential for a variety of...

New research shows that the cost of installing and owning solar panels will fall even faster than expected, BBC News reported. Some 90 percent of existing solar panels last for 30 years, instead of the predicted 20 years -- which brings down the lifetime cost, according to the independent EU Energy Institute. In fact, the panels are such a good long-term investment that banks should offer mortgages on them like they do on homes, the institute said. The institute forecasts that solar panels...
