We Can Print Solar Cells on Paper (But We Still Bulldoze Pristine Desert?)
Scientists at MIT have developed a way to print solar cells on paper or fabric. Other projects have produced solar cells embedded in roof shingles and windows. Why are we proposing to bulldoze hundreds of square miles of pristine desert and public land for archaic fields of steel and glass when we can put solar cells just about anywhere else? In our cities, over parking lots...on paper and fabric.
