By the way you solar freaks should know that ECD's roll to roll is much less expensive than the crystalline method. I know this because I had a long conversation with both manufacturers. Atlantis energy, a privately held swiss company, with offices throughout the world and with our own ECD Quadrat Delawari who is officed in San Diego. The crystalline method is much less effecient to produce and is not green freindly. When we get the 25KW plant up and running ECD will start to take off in a multiple type fashion, as far as solar revenues that is. I talked to both after reading an article that came out in the San jose merc news about photovaltaic cells being used to power a home in Palo Alto. The atlantic tiles are very fragile, not flexible like ECD's. Apparently only the ability to produce has held ECD back.
"Apparently only the ability to produce has held ECD back."
One wonders what the hell went on with Canon all those years and why production did not accelerate more quickly. Kanefam was pointing out that APWR got the recommendation this morning from TV. Well, APWR did a *much* better job of increasing production capacity. ECD seemed to promise those increase and then...?
