Solar Energy Windows

Scientist at MIT have a created a thin film coating for windows that lets light pass through but still can generate electricity. Made of organic dyes, light energy is transmitted to the edges of the windows were it is collected by solar panels. Because the window acts as a light gatherer, concentrating the energy, less photovoltaic material is need helping to bring down the total cost. And it produces 10 times more power than current solar energy methods.
