Re: Solar deck instead of solar panels

Completely flexible plastic stick on solar cells with the same output as regular cells are now coming out of the lab & could be in production within a few years, should be a real game changer for solar power afloat as well as everywhere else. I'd imagine they would quickly be available/adaptable as ruggedized nonslip cut to fit rolls if they go into production. Looks like the weight would be HUGELY reduced compared to current set-ups.
I can't link but a short article is on the site Extremetech "Stanford creates flexible, high-efficiency peel-and-stick solar cells"
