"A new the first of its kind device that creates electricity from falling snow, have been designed by researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).

The device is small, inexpensive, thin and flexible like a sheet of plastic…."

Pretty soon every rooftop in LA will be covered with this stuff to get "free" energy from all the snow that falls there,

Interesting concept. We'd probably get more mileage out of it here in Colorado Springs than they would in Los Angeles. Not clear how efficient it is, though. Would you need vast areas of silicon to power my house?

Glad you like it my friend!

Yeah, I bet that would work even better than solar panels in Minnesota…in January.

Wisconsin would be a good place to test it too! Darn snow! I wonder how large the sheets are and how would you install them?
