Solar Power Looks to Sea-Salt for Cheaper Costs


With subsidies for solar panels one of the first cuts to be made under the Coalition government’s ‘Energy Bill’ in 2013, one of the best things that could happen to solar energy in the commercial energy sector is for the cost of producing panels to suddenly be made cheaper.And whilst we’ve had no shortage of space-age solutions and efficiency-boosting nano-technologies that are in development, few seem overly practical or easily implemented into current production blueprints. However, scientists could be able to cut costs of commercial solar power by replacing a single component with sea salt.
