Solar towers provide up to 20 times the electricity as standard panels

Live Science reports that a group at MIT have constructed solar panel towers that generate up to 20 times the power as regular installations, and have a much smaller footprint. The solar towers also collect much more sunlight during the mornings and evenings than standard panel installation.

“I think this concept could become an important part of the future of photovoltaics,” said Jeffrey Grossman, a professor of power engineering at MIT.
