[David Feiman, Professor, Ben Gurion University]:
"As the high technology advance and you came up with cells that are more efficient, you remove the cell, recycling it and put a new one, and you upgrade it in one lifetime of the system."
How economical is the solar sizzler?
[Roy Segev, CEO, Zenith Solar]: (Eng.)
"We will be able harvest a kilowatt/hour by approximately 8.6 cents over a period of 15 years under the consumption of the Israeli sun."
Zenith Solar plans to develop smaller units that can be installed in the backyard or on house rooftops by the end of 2010.
The latest star performer in solar cell technology comes from Israel. The developers say their new panels offer an inexpensive way to collect both electric and thermal energy.
One year ago professor Feiman showed us his pilot plan for an innovative solar panel based on a simple concept: Replace large areas of expensive photovoltaic cells with inexpensive glass and concentrate sunlight onto a very small area of cells.
The Israeli startup Zenith Solar has now launched its first working power plan based on Feimans technology.
