Sometimes going from the Lab to full production doesn't always work like it is "therorized". What is the efficiency of the new process cells? Can they be manufactured on automated lines in a roll to roll process? How cheaply can they be made?$1.00 per watt?,$0.50,$0.25 per watt? Bring it on, let's roll.
