Things are moving rapidly on the solar cell front ..

"Sharp Develops Concentrator Solar Cell with World’s Highest Conversion 
Efficiency of 43.5% Achieved with Concentrator Triple-Junction Compound 
Solar Cell."   <http://sharp-world.com/corporate/news/120531.html>

and ..

"Researchers at Stanford University have developed a solar cell made
entirely from carbon-based materials. The solar cell is still at the
research stage, but if successfully refined and commercialized could
mean substantially cheaper cells as they would not rely on expensive
materials like indium." (but currently only 1% efficient)
