There are lots of solar panel systems being installed to take advantage of advances in the conversion of sunlight to electricity. In the next issue of Nanooze we write about how nanotechnology is making solar power more efficient—the more efficiently we can covert light into electricity the less panels you need to power a home, a car, anything.
Apple is building a space-age building and to power it they are installing a 1300 acre solar farm in California. Apple is investing close to a $1B in the project. The amount of power that will be produced is enough to p
over 50,000 homes. This new installation goes along with a few others including the solar farm in North Carolina which is used to power their data center.
