Hi. I'm sending this on behalf of my friend, Arjan Puniani, a local boy who transformed solar panels into a paint. These are 400 times cheaper than today's solar panels and I believe should be put to use as soon as possible. This will make solar panels obsolete and make solar power cheaper so everyone can use it. I'm trying to get media attention about this so if you'd like to arrange for an interview please email me at sellthesunrise@gmail.com
Thank you.

that's a wonderful development by your friend....I acknowledge you guys on that.
I'm not working in the media company I just have interest in that area. Especially to solve the problem of my country Nigeria. I believe some people can afford this in NIgeria and this can also contribute to your progress.
I will be glad to see this at work in Nigeria and the medias in Nigeria and the world will have the interest in you if they can see the proof.

“IT'S LIKE THIS. ”

Solar and paint just dont mix. So why the big news. I dont see any news in that. Go spit your painting in the trash can where it belongs.

Sorry but solar paint has already been invented by a number of companies. The products just haven't been brought to market yet. Essentially nano-TiO2 and coloured pigmented coatings generate the electricity. These are sandwiched between a metalic back conductor and a front clear glaze with metallic film.

I'm still interested to see what this person has come up with.

This technology has been available since the year 2005... It isn't new. They just are not selling it yet which is strange.

I am interested getting all paint-based Solar medium information.
I have a specific needs for them and will be able to turn them into
use.

Let me know,

Tell me more on it, if you think this is different than what's already out.
Thanks,

p.s.: It's not a new thing, and been done over a few years ago already, but
no demand for it yet.

How wonderful. Over the last 3 years we have placed serious investment into this effort and you will see some wonderful advances in solar paint type projects. Ours will be going into field trials this year with 10 homes selected around the nation to advance the accuracy and longevity of our work across various environments. This year will be very exciting as we leave our protected work and agressively advance into public trials to support much need solutions in energy use, cost and consumption. The concatenation of issues we face right now around the wrold require everyone's very best and ready technology to enter the solutions stage. Dr. Douglas Linman.

Terri, actually while many "solar paint" type projects started as early as the late 1980s, attempting to support military uses, there has only been a handful of recent projects that show greater promise. Most of the previous ones were failures at some level. Some were solar "reflective" materials and some solar "absorbent" materials and many simply became toxic over short periods of time and rendered not practicable because their lifespan was too short. There remain several claims right now, but until anyone successfully field trials a useable industrial product supporting a long lifespan like 15-20 years it would not be primetime ready for the expected uses. We are going into field trials this year across the country to 10 homes in various states including one in Alaska and few different applications (non homes) to bench test those as well. The result we expect is over a 40% energy savings. Once we know it's consistent or possibly regional percentages like north-west versus eastern we will publish the data as well. Wish you luck...

I will just add that folks we have to understand that the powers that be do not want us to even think about solar and wind as the way to go.

Why? BEcause these sources are FREE.

Keep in mind that all these great ideas come from all sorts of individuals that deal with solar and wind, but they never become mainstream.

Germany in only a few short years has converted to 20% solar power folks.

You need to ask yourself this - If I produce more electricity then I need with say my solar panels, why cant I sell it back to pge and make some money?

I mean what does pge do with the excess electricity that consumers put back into there grid?

They make money with it.

THINK ABOUT IT!

Quoted in link: "Swansea University has been working with steel companies for years. These companies produce those marvelously beautiful sheets of steel that cover buildings all over the world. But, while working on ways to make the steel not degrade in sunlight, a Swansea student figured out how to make the paint actually harness that energy and covert it to electricity."
