Since yesterday (now the day before) was Sunday…

and the fact that we’ve seen the sun for almost four straight days now, I thought I would post a few articles on solar power.

This first one comes courtesy of Inhabitat entitled “Paint on Solar Power” by Jorge Chapa. Now this sounds too good to be true. An article that goes hand in hand with this is “Colourful Idea Sparks Renewable Electricity From Paint” at ENN.

This next one, “InkJet-Printed, Flexible, Organic Solar Cells?” by Loretta Hidalgo Whiteside over at Wired Magazine is an excellent article on the latest buzz. Printable solar cells. Like the previous subject, this article also has an article that goes hand in hand with it. It’s entitled “Nanosolar: Power to the People” at ENN again.

These last two articles are sort of more house related. The first one, “Hammer and Nails Style Solar Roof Tiles by SRS Energy” by John Laumer at Treehugger and the second one is “SMIT’s Grow: Solar and Wind Leaf Photovoltaic Shingles” by Emily Pilloton at Inhabitat.

Good day sunshine!
