A company called V3Solar has announced a brand new solar panel design called the CoolSpin – that it says will make power 34% cheaper than the cheapest existing solar panels.  The lenses used in this solar panel design were invented in 1790 for use on lighthouse and concentrate sunlight, and the assembly rotates to follow the sun. Another interesting prospect among many – we’ll see if it pans out!
