  2. At $1 Per Watt, The iTunes Of Solar Energy Has Arrived

Solar energy will likely be the cheapest form of energy in the nearest future. A Silicon Valley start-up known as Nanosolar shipped its first batch of solar panels which is priced at $1 per watt. The company CEO, Martin Roscheisen was pictured reserving the first three commercially viable panels. One of the panels would be on display at the company’s headquarters, another was donated to the San Jose’s Tech Museum of Innovation while the third was sold on eBay at a starting price of 99cents. In 2014, Nanosolar which produced the CIGS thin-film solar panel broke the hearts of many when its assets were auctioned off.
