Eco Factor: Solar energy harvesting device offers renewable energy at the cost of coal. In an effort to lower the cost of renewable energy and make it available at the price of conventional sources of energy, inventor Roger Angel at the University of Arizona’s Steward Observatory Mirror Lab has produced the first prototype of a solar device that could eventually produce energy from the sun at a price rivaling the energy produced from conventional sources.
