As qerqwe points out, solar just isn't economical yet. But, if we got a few more breakthroughs, it may be in the not too-distant future.

I live in Phoenix where the sun shines all the time and I see all these rooftops. Very Very few with any sort of solar panels. WHY? It easy, there is no pay back. IE. SOLAR IS NOT YET ECONOMICAL. But... it is getting better.

Nice article. Lots have been said about solar market. Unless there is a strong approach from business houses and governments towards making solar as first choice or atleast supporting the growth of solar industry, we will see ups and down in its business.


Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
