GreenSun's jewel-toned solar panels do more than make your yard look pink from the kitchen. They're highly efficient at absorbing certain parts of sunlight's spectrum.
So even on cloudy days and when placed outside of the sun's direct gaze, these panels can still draw low levels of current—too low for commercial release at this time, but something scientists are working on now.
Because of their unique design that requires less silicon, the colorful panels would cost less to produce that traditional solar tech...meaning that the stained glass industry could be due for a big boon. [GreenSun via Neatorama via DVICE]
