I mentioned Nanosolar back in August because I found an excellent video about the company — they’re poised to dramatically flip this solar industry inside out. Today comes news that they shipped their first product and received an actual revenue check. This is a big deal. Thin film solar is incredible because it can be used more flexibly and produced at a much lower cost.
Their powersheet product was recognized by Popular Science as 2007 Innovation of the Year. Now that the product is a reality, we’re going to see some craziness. They’ve accomplished a slew of world’s firsts (below) and decided to auction off an early batch of product on eBay. Unfortunately, that’s all you’re likely to get because they’re sold out for the next 12 months! Better start your orders now.
