Flexible Solar Power Shingles Transform Roofs From Wasted Space To Energy Source

By ScienceDaily on June 8, 2009

A transparent thin film barrier used to protect flat panel TVs from moisture could become the basis for flexible solar panels that would be installed on roofs like shingles.The flexible rooftop solar panels - called building-integrated photovoltaics, or BIPVs - could replace today's boxy solar panels that are made with rigid glass or silicon and mounted on thick metal frames.
