Nationwide Home Solar Power Contractors and Information
While working on his PhD thesis at the University of Copenhagen, Martin Aagesen discovered a new solar cell material with a perfect crystalline structure. That material has come to be known as nano flakes, and many in the industry believe it could spark a revolution. Aagesen believes nano flakes could potentially convert up to 30 percent of the solar energy they absorb into electricity, in part because their perfect crystalline structure absorbs all light.
That amazing talent could make nano flakes the perfect solar cell material. Given the relative inefficiency (although improving steadily) of current solar cells, a "perfect" solar cell would certainly revolutionize the industry. Furthermore, their excellent structure and nanoscale technology should make nano flakes more affordable than other cells because less of the semiconducting material - the most expensive solar cell ingredient - is needed.
That said, nano flake solar cells are still primarily in development. It is much too early to say for sure whether they will revolutionize the solar industry, but the pieces are there. If researchers like Aagesen succeed in developing a 30-percent efficient solar cell, it will, to say the least, change the face of the industry and send solar energy soaring into the limelight.

Real honest, real straightforward. What he told us is what we got. I would highly recommend him.
Dear Steve, I am writing this letter to thank you and express our satisfaction with your business, your product, your installation of our solar system and your employees. I was very happy that I could sit down and talk face to face with the owner of the business and not rely on the promises of a commissioned salesman. With regards to your employees, we were impressed with everyone with whom we came in contact. Every one was very helpful and my hat goes off to all of them for putting up with all of my phone calls and emails. The crew was very courteous, friendly, hardworking, and tolerant of my presence during the installation. They were very careful to keep the job site clean and they strived to get our system ready for inspection in a very timely manner. As far as the system itself, we are extremely pleased with its performance. Those SunPower modules are remarkable. They start generating at first light and are still going until it is almost dark! I almost went out to check the inverters during the full moon. Once again, thank you for the excellent work your company performed for us! Please feel free to use us as a reference. We would be glad to answer questions and show off our system to you perspective customers.
