Sounds like another government subsidized boondoggle for a planet that already has more energy than it needs.

Looks Business Insider can be filed in the MSM folder.

It's an idea, but not something that will happen within next 50-100 years at least, unless there will be a major breakthrough in solarpanel technology.

At it's current state it barely pays off to own these.
However, there are some advancements made. Recent one was a totally see-through / transparent solarpanel that can be used instead of regular glass.
The downside was it only held 1% of the power a regular (which is weak enough) panel.
