Something is happening in the solar cell world

Quick - what is the cost/watt for solar panels?

Most of you would have answered with a number between $7/watt and $10/watt.  And although the cost has been falling over the years, it has been falling slowly.

What would you say if I told you it was now possible to buy solar panels for about $2/watt?  You can, even with free shipping, if you do some judicious eBay shopping.

And if you consider yourself to be a handy person, here's a killowatt of solar cells which only need to be corralled up into panels, for only $0.35/watt.  Let me say that again: $0.35/watt!  (Well, no.  You can't have that one, 'cause I bought it.  But there are more...)

It is getting easier and easier to justify solar power...
