We are getting there! yay.gif

Quote:The company is taking orders right now for the solar roof, but Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that installations will start during summer 2017. Musk refused to give details about pricing, but said that it will be competitive with traditional roof and solar systems.

Another breakthrough...and I hope it will be inexpensive when they finally get it off the assembly line and into stores.

Quote:That a new solar cell broke a record for efficiency isn’t terribly groundbreaking. Incremental improvements happen all the time. But this time, the record cells were built using techniques that are easier to transfer to assembly lines.

The new cells, produced by Kaneka, Corp. in Japan, were 26.3% efficient at converting sunlight into electricity, closing in on the theoretical limit for crystalline silicon solar cells, which is 29%.
