Cheap Solar Power?

Interesting article in Wired about Idealab's newest baby - a solar collector which uses cheap mirrors to concentrate sunlight on a smaller silicon panel. No indication on what exactly the cost per Kwh will be, but the article does cite a cost 1/3 that of previous solar power systems.

I don't know if this particular system will be a tipping point or anything, but cheap solar power is always worth sharing.
