Sounds good. Solar PV is only about 17% efficient, it would be good to see it improve.

low output ,messy to make ,handy for a watch or calculator
imho the worst sort of greenwashing as a local power supply

Thought the low tec "printed" solar panels had the most mileage in them. Supposedly costing 30c per watt to make & retailed at 90c / watt. 100% production is going to Germanys big solar farms.
