Solar now cheaper than coal

Nanosolar’s Breakthrough - Solar Now Cheaper than Coal » Celsias

Looks promising if it really can do what it claims.

Also, sorry if this has been posted already.

Don't know if it's been posted before, but every month or two there's a new "break thru!" in the solar industry. It's been going on for years, and the cost of an 80w panel has gone up about 15% since 2000.

Like you said "I'll believe it when I see it."
