This is quite exciting for solar energy fans: nanosolar is shipping their first panels and so far, here are where the three first ones are going (from the nanosolar blog):
- Panel #1 will remain at Nanosolar for exhibit.
- Panel #2 can be purchased by you in an auction on eBay starting today.
- Panel #3 has been donated to the Tech Museum in San Jose.
If you don’t know what nanosolar does, their mission basically makes cheaper solar panel than anyone else (as measured in $/Watt). According to nanosolar, their panel costs $1/Watt.
I’m not shopping for solar panels often, but I think that a good price used to be $4/Watt, so it would be a significant edge. What do you think? Real or hype?
