A Different Kind of PV

Engadget had an article here on a different kind of solar photovoltaic (PV) panel that could change the way solar energy is harnessed. Solyndra‘s solar PVs are arranged into rods instead of the more familiar flat panels, which requires either securing the panels semi-permanently or using ballasts to prevent the wind from taking it all off. Also, the rods-as-PV need not be tilted towards the sun and catch more light, even those refelcted off the roof itself. Pretty neat!
