Solar Panels under $2/watt

Okay, not just yet - but soon we may have much cheaper solar panels. This is down to research by the Colorado State University. The panels will be made by AVA Solar, and production should start towards the end of next year. The manufacturing process is also claimed to have a lower environmental impact, although it does use cadmium telluride (CdTe) which sounds quite nasty.
