ABSTRACT
The article discusses solar cell technology, as well as the latest developments of the technology as of February 2010. It also explores the different methods and calculations that are used in the design of solar power systems for communications sites. It also cites the research carried out at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Colorado that is focused on organics, thin-film technology and multi-junction concentrators. It also presents how to design solar arrays for remote locations.
