"OptiSolar is a vertically intigrated company manufacturing its own solar cells and panels and claims its amorphous silicon thin-film solar PV panels combine proprietary manufacturing processes and innovative design to yield affordable, durable panels that significantly reduce the cost of clean solar power. Their thin-film design requires only about 1% of the silicon used in crystalline systems, thus not being affected by the availability of crystalline silicon." - 100% agree and adore this :)

I think that it is improtant to try and get more people using solar energy but buying solar panels can be very expensive, so if people are able to build panels themselves then i think there will be a much greater chance of saving the planet. Nice post.

Opti solar tried to build a plant in sarnia Ontario on 1,000 acres of land. They failed dismally and First solar had to take over and demolish their equipment (opti,s) and install their own system which was a success.Opti Solar didn,t know what frost can do to the ground in shifting panel mounts ect.Opti solars panels were installed in a mutiple rack at once and this didn,t work so good. First solar,s panels were mounted one at a time by hand.

Bottom line is that solar farms output is insignificant in kilowatt output and is very expensive power in the mix with nuclear and thermal generating power plants. We have to remember that simple everyday people can not afford the escalating costs of this expensive power.Special interest groups lobby governments for green energy and politicians have short term jobs like hockey coaches and line their pockets while the gettins good. (to back their political campaigns and the end result of soaking the average joe on his electricity bill.These same politicians should be tarred and feathered and put on public display for ass kicking in my opinion. the shame of it.

Producing solar power in North America makes about as much sense as building a snow factory for the Eskimos this solar farm will be using up to 1 million, And North America will gain gain more profit to using this solar system.
