I refuse to believe that any serious study such as which says solar panels now (and that's not even considering thin-film) are not taking night into account. Give me a break.

When it it comes to Nanosolar's claim of $1 a watt I'll conceed that we know very little of what's behind the claim. But it is clear that plenty of people have been convinced it will turn a good profit. Hence, even companies like are jumping into the thin film business.

And its pretty ironic that you bring up the cost of real estate and power transmission, because it is a unique benifit of solar that it requires neither to be implemented. That doesn't mean putting them on your roof will supply all your power, but I certainly think it can take a significant dent out of the energy problem if thin-film does live up to its economic expectations.

I'm certainly hoping for breakthrough like Polywell. But realistically, I think the contribution of many new energy sources in smaller ways will be an effective way of dealing with the problem: new nuclear (fission), wind, thin-film solar, cellulosic ethanol, better hybrids plus turbo-diesel (why has it taken the US so long on this one?). None of these are an answer in and of themselves, but combined I think they can take us a long way.
