Solar energy / Re: Method to increase solar panel current by 125%

And here it is again. People that make money from their inventions have one thing in common. They are willing to RISK IT ALL in pursuit of the idea.

I posted it mainly to show that "Green" actually isn't as green as we think.

Not too sure about that one.

Energy in, verses energy out.

I would then assume a gravity battery is very close to 100% efficient.

Charging with wind/solar " at the farm" would be good. I was saying that if the government and EV makers think they can just make Electric vehicles and sell them willy nilly, without doing something to the grid to allow charging a billion EV's without brownouts or worse, then they are smoking locoweed.

There must be a catch somewhere.  It would be neat to have battery banks near photovoltaic farms to provide 24 hour power.

This may be the next best solution. But they still don't see the impact on the grid.

Yes. Also "Goof off".
But I guess I've answered my question, the "Big panels" are made better than the cheapo small panels. No haze.
