Solar Power Markets Continued Growth Could Benefit Solar Nanotechnology

Insight Management Corp., (PINKSHEETS: ISIM), a provider of sustainable solutions including solar and wind energy systems and eco-friendly prefabricated homes, reported yesterday that their solar nanotechnology will be incorporated into Simpson Brothers Greenhouses in their day-to-day greenhouse production operations.

The Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA), in its Global Market Outlook for Photovoltaics Until 2015 (September 2011), says that the U.S. had about 2.5 gigawatts (GW) installed PV solar energy capacity in 2010; with estimates of 20,000 GW installed by 2015 even with moderate U.S. Government incentives. With increased usage, companies like SunPower Corp (NASDAQ: SPWR), Real Good Solar (NASDAQ: RSOL) and Westinghouse Solar (NASDAQ: WEST) could begin to utilize nanotechnology for a more efficient product and lowered costs.
