Download additional data comparing the electrical output of a SL-150-157 Solyndra panel to a conventional CIGS PV module (Solar Frontier SC85-EX-B) under the same conditions. Download supplemental information that explains the content found in the OSA and additional data files. Download a simple geometry-based mathematical derivation that describes the number of hours that a cylindrical array can effectively collect solar energy.
It would facilitate
public support for solar energy if more people understood how this approach differed from conventional, or flat-plate, PV.
