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..?

  1. Not just promising, but in production. I think the customers will drive demand, not the government – unless research needs to continue (that seems to be where government usually provides value-added).
