Kathy was 35 years old, but she felt like she was 65. She was exhausted, really exhausted. She had been that way for close to four years. Coming home from work and counting the minutes until the kids went to bed so she could was becoming a daily occurrence. She was even tired on weekends. She never seemed to catch up on her rest, even when she slept ten hours a night she felt like she needed more sleep. She felt like she was living with her head in a cloud. Her fatigue interfered with everything in her life: work, hobbies, cooking, and most importantly, her family. Her husband complained that she had no interest in sex and her children were begging their mommy to play with them.

Todays typical solar cells have conversion efficiencies of 15 to 20%, but research and development programs aim to increase that to greater than 50%. While solar cells are already used for calculators, watches, satellites, remote telecommunications devices, municip...
