According to news reports Nanosolar's Santa Clara plant should begin prodcution in late spring or early summer: They're not building a plant so much as converting an existing one to their use. It will be very exciting BUT will not be the panacea greens hope for. Even at full production their plant will only provide a miniscule fraction of the power necessary to replace all carbon-producing powerplants in the world. Even if we made it a priority it would take 100 years to make a dent in world enercy consumption. Ironically in the short term the best way to bring down carbon emissions is to build only nuclear power plants, no more fossil fuel power plants, between now and 2100, to meet growing energy demands. Then when solar and other alternatives catch up phase those back out.
