The Future of Solar Energy – Solar Cells Integrated Into Typical Windows -

Sporadic complaints concerning solar panels are that they are not necessarily attractive. However, this may be about to change. Researchers created an innovative new transparent solar cell; this means that windows can have the capacity of producing electricity while they are allowing people to see through it. This interesting development is described by the Los [...]
