Today we are announcing that we have begun shipping panels for freefield deployment in Eastern Germany and that the first Megawatt of our panels will go into a power plant installation there.
As far as the first three of our commercial panels are concerned:
Panel #1 will remain at Nanosolar for exhibit.
Panel #2 can be purchased by you in an auction on eBay starting today.
Panel #3 has been donated to the Tech Museum in San Jose.Ebay felth honnored it seems. hahahaha
Our eBay auction started at 99 cents and quickly reached more than $13,000.00, with still more than 6 days left. When we saw this, we decided it would be appropriate to use the proceeds after the auction for a charitable purpose. We regret that without warning eBay today decided to delete our auction due to the promised charitable use of the proceeds. Our Director of Legal spent much of this afternoon on the phone with eBay trying to reinstate the auction, we suspect the eBay rep who cancelled it must have misread their policies geared towards charities (we are not!) but without success. Upon review we decided this isn't a battle we care to fight more than an afternoon, so it's back to building cells and panels for us. In other words, Panel #2 will stay at Nanosolar for now (no auction); thank you to everyone for participating in our auction; and most importantly: HAPPY HOLIDAYS.Nanosolar Blog
For the second consecutive year, Popular Science is honoring one top product out of its 100 Best of What's New award winners as "Innovation of the Year." This honor goes to the remarkably designed PowerSheet flexible solar cells. Imagine a solar panel without the panel. Nanosolar has created an ink that takes sunlight and converts it into electricity. The ink is coated onto metal sheets as thin as aluminum foil with a printing-press-like device. The sheets are lighter, inexpensive and as efficient as traditional solar panels. The editors of PopSci believe that eventually every commercial rooftop could be carpeted with PowerSheet solar cells.Popular Science
