Flexible Solar Cells Generate Electricity at the Same Cost as Coal


Nanosolar has a manufacturing facility churning out flexible solar cells on aluminum foil.  They claim they could produce electricity at five to six cents per kilowatt hour, which is 3-4 times less expensive than current methods.  This brings solar cells electricity generation down to the same cost as coal.    Now why hasn’t this gotten the attention of the US government..?
