      Here's your wind generator picture that I most remember. I like that both that and this one are taken at night. This is beautiful.

      oh no no, this is a "you tell me" kinda process bud ;)

      I wonder how much more power these 'lunar' panels could produce if the light from the moon was focused using an array of magnifying glasses or telescopes for example.

      Does focussed light contain more energy per dot (being focused to a point) than the unfocused area that the light will natually fall on?

      Is this is the case then solar panels have much room for improvement!

    17. Norby 86 months ago | reply

      Well yes, it's just reflected sunlight. There are a number of styles of concentrators and types of focusing that are under development:

      www.greenandgoldenergy.com.au/

      When you concentrate the solar energy, you add complexity with regards to focusing the light on a smaller area as well as dealing with higher operating temperatures (which affect the efficiencies of the underlying PV materials).

      Yeah, nice one! Gotta love the depth of blue. Looks a bit romantic to me.

      Another great example that technology can be rewarding. No only are solar panels saving the planet but also giving pleasure for the eyes.
