Revolutionary Solar Energy?

Do we finally have it? I sure hope so.

Ignoring the northern hemisphere, just think how much energy production could be replaced in the southern hemisphere with this technology.
One of the largest inhibitors to cheap solar power has always been the high cost of solar panels (due to their thick glass, framing, and expensive silicon). San Jose-based Nanosolar, Inc. appears ready to eliminate these barriers with solar technology that utilizes thin sheets of non-silicon components that reduce the production costs by over 90% and decreases the thickness by 99% (the Nanosolar PowerSheets are thin enough to be rolled up).
