Spray-on Solar Cells

A new plastic solar cell can capture both visible and infrared light and convert it to energy, allowing it to work effectively even on a cloudy day.

This plastic polymer can be sprayed like a paint, or woven into clothing. Researchers say that it is 30% efficient at converting the sun’s rays into energy, compared to typical solar cells which operate at around 6% efficiency.

Thanks Dennis for pointing this one out!
