Sunrgi develops focused light solar system that creates energy at 5 cents per kwh?

Sungri, California based solar panel company has announced the development of a new concentrated photovoltaic panel that should revolutionize the solar energy industry. The XCPV system (Xtreme Concentrated Photovoltaics) is designed to provide whole electricity cost at the rate of 5 cents per kilowatt hour. The system uses a lens to focus sunlight onto the photovoltaic panel to for greater output. The panels are also designed to not depend on silicon for their construction further reducing the cost per kwh.

The company announced the development of the new panels at “The National Energy marketers Association’s 11th Annual global Energy Forum” in Washington D.C.

“Solar Power at 5 cents per kWh would be a world-changing breakthrough,” said Craig Goodman, president, National Energy Marketers Association. “It would make solar generation of electricity as affordable as generation from coal, natural gas or other non-renewable sources, without requiring a subsidy”

“In a little more than a year we were able to develop and successfully test XCPV,” said Robert S (Bob) Block, co-founder and SUNRGI principal. “We expect the SUNRGI system to become available for both on and off-grid power applications, worldwide, in twelve to fifteen months”

In less than 2 months we’ll have 5 cents kWh Solar power being distributed world wide. Say goodbye to the boot to the neck of the poor man !

Where are those solar panels you wrote about? How can I get my hands on some?

so tyhis article was 3-4 yrs ago. what happened to the 12-15 month prediction.
Let me guess. their patent was bought by some big contemporary solar panel manufacturer who didn’t want to see their investment in current technology go down the drain.
