I was wondering what the % efficiency of solar energy to electrical energy is. The datasheet on the inventor's website states that at 1000 w/m2, the Pmax was around 50 W. Does this mean 5% efficiency? That's not very high..if that is the case, the advantage of this technology will have to come from better temperature operating ranges, lighter weight, and it needs to be less than half the price of solar panels that have twice the efficiency.--Egregius 12:53, 20 January 2010 (PST)
