The solar conversion efficiency of first silicon solar cell was reported to be 6%. The estimated cost of production of solar cell was USD 600 per Wp. The applications that could be envisioned at that time were of power generation in remote locations where fuel could not be easily delivered. The obvious application was satellites where the requirement of reliability and light weight made the cost of solar PV unimportant. The first ever application of solar photovoltaics in space was in 1958 in… CONTINUE READING
