    Unique mobility

    I assume that this is the regenerative brake, that thekanefam mentions.

    • 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
      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.

      • That is very informative.

        The only bummer
        I can find is:

        "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...?
