Good news; GE is opening a plant in Aurora Colorado. Factory will have a 400 Mega Watt solar panel distribution capability per year. Consider that the total USA installation of solar panels in 2010 was 878 Mega Watts. GE will have advanced the solar panel industry by nearly a 50% increase. A beginning of the dismantling of China’s corner on the solar panel markets. Mr. Abate speculates world solar panel markets will be 75,000 Mega Watts within 5 years. Will we lead the way into this fertile valley of profiting energy renewals? No subsides.
GE has a roll to roll method at its disposal that can imprint inject an ink solar panel unto a plastic substrate. This provides a flexible solar panel and a variety of shapes and sizes. Light weight and installation friendly.
Nanosolar Inc. has been experimenting and refining this system. They have since 2006 improved injection solar panels from 2.5% efficiencies to presently 17.5%. Speculation is that innovation will soon break the 0.65 cent per watt threshold of fossil fuel efficiency,
GE has incorporated Prime Star Solar into their corporation. Ground braking for the manufacturing plant is scheduled for 2012 with distributions by 2013. Facility will be the length of 11 football fields. 300 full time employees to run the plant. Additional plants are on the drawing boards.
Presently GE is working with Inovateus Solar in producing solar carport charging stations. Prototype in Conn. Charges 8 cars per day, Expansion on this system will be to charge parking lots with a capacity of 250 cars per day. A 400% increase in energy efficiency over the fossil fuel combustible systems of today and yesteryear. Toxic elements spewing into our atmosphere presently will be reduced in factors of Multi Tonnage per day.
Who would want or seek to produce obstacles, to this?{R}?
Couple this with the ever increasing parabolic solar efficiencies of utility grade production and we have the threshold of a dream. Bursting flowering blooming blossoms of Green Energies.
