12-year old innovates solar cell technology

http://news.yahoo.com/s/zd/232218;_ylt=ApcFd00KY4lBDr.iMyk1K80Wr7sF

Like we've been saying all along, the best hope for our future lies in the fresh minds and perspectives of the next generation.

Leave it to a 12-year old in Oregon to come up with the idea to harness both visible and ultra-violet light, using carbon Nanotubes to help capture and focus the highest energy possible coming from the sun!

"William Yuan is a seventh grader in Oregon whose project, titled "A Highly-Efficient 3-Dimensional Nanotube Solar Cell for Visible and UV Light," may change the energy industry and make solar energy far easier to harness and distribute. At the heart of Yuan's project is a special solar cell that can harness both visible and ultraviolet light."

William won a $25,000 scholarship for his school project and is currently looking for solar panel technology partners to help him implement his concept into products that will most certainly put our country at the forefront of solar power.

Hippy Gourmet feature on Sun Run!



In this segment from Organic Living with the Hippy Gourmet TV, we sit down on a roof top with Nat Kreamer, President and COO of Sun Run - a company that provides a unique and cost-effective solution to residential and business customers looking to go solar! Sun Run acts like a utility, helping consumers decide on the best solar companies to work with, where Sun Run absorbs the majority of the upfront costs (including maintenance and insurance), and then sells that power back to home and business owners without them ever having to worry about the cost of the sun's power rising!
