If you could form this stuff up into sheets and roll it out on home roof top, even at 8% efficiency you could generate a lot of power. You would not necessarily have to make sure the solar product was on a south facing roof, it could be the whole roof. With sheet or roll printing technology, you could produce KW of electricity for pennies.
