Thin film vs glass/silicon photovoltaic

Learning a little about the difference between silicon/glass  vs polymer based photovoltaic systems.

Even though slightly less efficient (for now), because of the flexibility and durability there are more applications possible so therefore more of a market for them.

Ascent Solar in Colorado has opened a thin polymer production plant in July of 2010.

Hope they outdo the efficiency of glass/silicon soon.  The field has needed increased competition and different ideas.
