    I am not a science person but I do wonder how long the bacteria would last. it needs to feed on something to grow, correct? Also I wondered about the temperatures and if that would have an affect. Very interesting concept.

    All I got out of that link was a sales brochure for the home builder. Not a smidge of info on how those panels are supposed to work. Trolling for stock sales, maybe? One of the statements really got me, solar panels that are supposed to produce power in below ground mines. Did I miss something, or am I in a perpetually confused state ---

    I have to wonder what the effect is this bacteria in the long term and human exposure to this in the event of breakage .
    not only that but the effect of freezing and the heat of the sun. living things can only take so much abuse.
