Re: Solar - Nextgen
I'm not sure the marine industry, especially the pleasure boat market, is large enough to warrant anyone investing the time and money to develop solar panels with non-skid for yacht decks.
However, I would like to see the solar cell manufacturers develop a dome that fits on each cell and directs sunlight that is not close to overhead into the cell like direct overhead light. Not so good for walking on, but more efficient sunlight hours per day.
