The growth is being spurred by a shortage in silicon, which is keeping prices of traditional photovoltaic cells higher. Thin film solar cells, which can be created in a variety of ways, but are not dependent on silicon, are thus comparatively cheap and will remain so until polysilicon becomes cheap again. But even then, the report said, thin film solar would still increase it's market share because its light and flexible, and so can be applied to curved surfaces. Good news for investors, good news for mother earth...good news for us all.
It's great news...
