Super Solar panel ?

The Inquirer has an interesting story about a South Carolina company which claims to have developed a solar panel which is 15 times more efficient than current solar panels. The company, FreEnergy LLC, claims to do this by using the entire spectrum of light from the sun, rather than a fraction as conventional solar cells do. The other interesting thing about the company is that one of the founders moved from California to South Carolina to start the company. :-) Rather the opposite of the usual clean tech startup trend :-) You can read more about the company on . Is this a fundamental breakthrough or another cold fusion like story. ? Time will tell. The Inquirer, as usual, comes up with the most interesting stories, even if they don't all turn out to be true :-)
