Given the price of electricity in Thailand I wouldn't consider investing a cent in the current technology as there is so much on the horizon.

3D Printed solar panels on plastic film ... under production.
The creators of printed solar said it could form part of the answer to the so-called energy crisis
an installation the same size as what is being trialled at the university has the potential to provide half
the power needed for an average home.
When production ramps up to full-scale, printed solar could power thousands of homes.
"We estimate now that even based on our small printer, that we can print hundreds of
metres of solar cells every day which means that we'll be able to power using scaled up
printers, say thousands and thousands of homes... it's very exciting."
Printed solar is expected to be available commercially in about three years time - and it's not just designed to go on roofs.
"One of the things about these cells is that they're not as sensitive to light intensity," Professor Dastoor said.

"Any part of the roof will generate electricity; even walls, windows, surfaces of vehicles, tents, lightweight
structures, roofs that can't take a heavy conventional silicone solar cells are now accessible to these modules.

"We will massively increase the area of solar cells that we can produce and generate power from, so we think
it's going to be a big change to the way in which we think about power being generated renewably."
