What is CdTe and why should I care? It could be the future of solar! In this video, I will explain what Cadmium Telluride, or CdTe, solar panels are all about. Not only are they potentially…

  1. You can't buy these unless you are a utility company.

  2. Why is trump fucking badly around with the ev industry?

  3. BuellersBack says:

    When will moon panels be out?

  4. Daxx Green says:

    Great video friend. I'm looking for a solar JOB! I'm near Boulder, CO. Got any suggestions? I have 8 years electrical experience and a Manufacturing Engineering degree. Tons of construction experience too.

  5. rebelforgod says:

    Quick!
    Buy telluride!
    It's price is going up, maybe way up!

  6. rebelforgod says:

    If they handle heat much better, their cost-efficiency can be increased by reflecting more sunlight onto each panel, for more output at little cost increase.

  7. dan ginther says:

    Seemed factual until he blamed president Trump for solar tarriffs which have been around for 20 years.

  8. GibsSon says:

    Anyone that is concerned about "climate change" is a dolt.

  9. Why should i care if they're not available? I tried to buy some but they only future market these to utility companies on a large scale which does me absolutely no good. I need panels RIGHT NOW, not at some unspecified future date. I just got another shipment of imported silicon panels TODAY and they'll be on my roof by Monday afternoon when i get more MC4 connectors in the mail. They will be producing power next week while this will be perpetually 10 years in the future. By the time these hit the market tellurium will cost more than platinum simply because producing these at any reasonable scale will increase demand and drive prices up in the unlikely event that they actually enter production without the company failing under the weight of corporate corruption and scandal that ubiquitously pervades in the capitalist system. My bet is on them robbing a bunch of investors in the name of nationalism and declaring bankruptcy before i'm able to buy a single panel.

    So i'll just keep buying as many pre-tax imported panels as i can RIGHT NOW instead of holding my breath for these. I'm off grid and necessity dictates that i use what's available instead of waiting for First Solar to mass produce these fairytale unicorns. Even if they do produce utility scale grid power with them, it's still worthless to me since there's no grid on the mountain, just 350 days worth of south-face sun a year that i need to block from heating up my roof, and shading it with silicon panels while making power to run equipment has been doing me just fine for the past 7 or 8 years.

  10. the problem we have is with solar,there is no sunshine,,,earth is dark,,we are in hell,,,so lets find
    how to get energy in hell…..darkness.. cometrails,,dont buy solar,,wind is better choice….but its not…
    find some donkeys to spin a generator 5 hours to charge your batteries,,but donkeys need food,,nice…lol

  11. Thanks for the info, and for not using the dreaded "robot voice".

  12. can we use a cdte panel for more than 15 years?

  13. Now I'm regretting buying conventional solar panels a few months ago.

  14. David Seiko says:

    Can these materials be recycled without toxic gasses. are these panels more efficient that MONO panels? You didnt give numbers. thumbs down from me

  15. Liam Duncan says:

    Cambridge university says different

  16. No mention of price/watt..

  17. Killroy says:

    How about CdTe vs CIGS?

  18. Awesome video man! BTW are you Casually Explained on the side?

  19. Great excitement at the end of video 👍

  20. zeroeclips says:

    Trump raised the tariffs by 30% across the board. Korea and Vietnam etc. had 15%-25% tariffs while China our biggest supplier of solar panels had tariffs as high as 200%. This flat 30% tariff actually lowered the cost of solar panels. Misinformation like this will give the market a reason to price gouge because the media is pushing the false expectation of a price hike.

  21. Had to get your anti trump rant in there didn’t you.

  22. Chris Parlow says:

    Just tell me how well it works and the cost ! I could care less about its Carbon foot print.

  23. It seems that there are two major problems with this technology. Tellurium is a rare element (between one and five parts per billion in the earth's crust). It may be lacking or no longer available in sufficient quantity to ensure the sustainability of the channels that use it.
    Cadmium also raises questions because it is a toxic element that can accumulate along the food chain. In the 1950s, mining industries dumped cadmium into rivers in the Toyama Prefecture of Japan, causing the so-called Itai-Itai disease in the population. In particular, it resulted in bone softening and kidney failure. Affected inhabitants fed on rice from crops irrigated by contaminated water. Note, however, that cadmium becomes harmless once included in solar cells, as confirmed by several scientific studies published in specialized journals.
    A fire could not release the cadmium from the solar cells because the heat would melt the surrounding glass, trapping it. The main risks would be for people working in assembly or recycling plants, but there are many industrial processes to prevent poisoning.
    Finally, we need less cadmium to make a solar panel than a single NiCd battery. For the less convinced, cells devoid of toxic element were born in the 1980s. They consist in particular of indium and gallium.

  25. Yay inevitably more cadmium in our soil! More interested in organic solar cells myself.

  26. Keep chugging along for the mother of all collectors, 98% efficient!

    A Graphene PENCIL LEAD IS The Thing TO HAVE

  28. Steven Scott says:

    You said that this video would be educational. C'mon…

  29. Mark Gigiel says:

    I used to like reading the comments. Just more proof we are doomed judging by the stupidity of people. DEVOLUTION.

  30. If you people make the prices high then the silicon panels will be the leader .

  31. Do they make any flexable panels?

  32. Thin-film solar panels are in general not very useful for in most residential situations. They are cheap, but they also require a lot of space. Monocrystalline solar panels produce up to four times the amount of electricity as thin-film solar panels for the same amount of space.

  33. That's good…Tellurium hard to come by? Selling back the old panels should bring a hefty price rebate.

  34. Peter Dawes says:

    Won't sell it in EU as it won't comply with RoHS because Cadmium is a toxic heavy metal.

  35. NoBrain says:

    hahaha do you honestly think id listen to the american's?? id rather trust ISIS thanks

  36. Alan Sumner says:

    None of this is fact checked don't believe everything you here and see on Internet people
