The Scottish Solar Energy Group celebrates these changes and invites you to share ideas on how to promote the Solar Revolution as an alternative to despair about impending Climate Disruption. Solar cells with efficiencies above 20% and produced at low costs ... we'll discuss how these are coming to market surprisingly quickly.
