Missouri is about to experiment with power from an unlikely source - its roads

BRYAN CLARK for TheNextWeb:  Part of its ‘Road to Tomorrow Initiative,’ Missouri’s Department of Transportation is teaming with Solar Roadways, an Idaho-based startup (seriously, what’s going on in Idaho?) to cover an undetermined length of Historic Route 66 with road-ready solar panels. Blair also told The Star that the bulk of its efforts will be crowdfunded. After receiving a $100,000 grant from the Federal Highway Administration to build a prototype, and a pair of $750,000 research grants from the US Department of Transportation, the group has raised more than $2 million of its own to complete the project through acrowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. Solar Roadways’ panels are tempered safety glass that are as strong as they are efficient. In addition to harnessing energy from the sun, they also come with LED lighting to effectively replace road lines and signage. While obviously more expensive to install upfront, the panels do have the benefit of being completely modular, which would allow for quick and cheap repairs by just swapping out the broken panels rather than re-paving entire stretches of road.   Cont'd...

PVinsights: Strom is brewing in solar market

The price correction of multi-crystalline wafer has enlarged this week as the demand drops noticeably. Yet capacity expansion from the 2nd and 3rd tier multi-crystalline wafer makers comes on stream recently, making the price of multi-crystalline wafer further depressed. Moreover, multi-crystalline wafer prices are also forced to comply with bigger correction in response to the deteriorating demand and prices of multi-crystalline cells. Similarly, the demand of mono-crystalline wafer also sees signs of faltering, due to the expanded price gap with multi-crystalline wafer and the weakening downstream demand.
