…could supercharge solar power plants"

not meant to be a tease title – just too many characters.

Early research – not ready for commercial applications – that may significantly impact solar farms.

I wonder if all roofing tiles and shingles will be made of something like this one day.

The advances in solar are so rapid that I, as a layman, cant keep up.

When reasonably cheap flexible solar is available, it will go on my roof. I have a curved roof, so the rigid solar panels just dont work. Appropriate batteries are almost here. And solar costs keep going down. So I am almost at the tipping point.

Of course, I live in part of the world with expensive energy costs, making solar more attractive.
