Solyndra offers an interesting solar design

I’m all for innovative solar installations. This design from Solyndra looks fairly promising. I’m very excited about eventually putting some solar collecters on my home and start selling electricity back to the grid.

From the link:

The company’s photovoltaic rods are able to catch rays from any direction, meaning they don’t need to be tilted to point at the sun. Also, since they’re not shaped like a silicon kite, they don’t need the same big, beefy installation brackets. This cuts installation costs in half and has helped to drive $1.2 billion in orders from eager would-be customers of this three-year-old startup. Want to see ’em for yourself? Head on down to the Solar Power International Expo next week in sunny San Diego.
