Solar Panel Shortage
I am a big fan of solar power and other renewable energy sources, and so it bugs me that there is currently a shortage in the polysilicon solar panels. I am really hoping that Solar Panels are going to really take off in the next few years and the article talks about the upcoming technologies as well.
A shortage of polysilicon solar panels, those mirror-like panels seen most often on the top of buildings, will continue to crimp the potential for solar energy for a second straight year, according to a report from investment bank Piper Jaffray.
Alternative solar technologies, such as thin-film solar panels, however, will begin to pick up the slack in 2007 and allow the industry to accelerate again.
I wonder how many people would be considering using Solar Panels for their houses over the next 3-5 years as energy prices continue to rise.
