Personal solar panels are great for apartment-dwellers

Solar power seems like a great solution to our energy crisis, but large panels are so expensive that they seem best suited for large companies looking to "green" up their headquarters. But what about apartment dwellers looking to get in on the fun? Well, these wee solar panels are designed with them in mind.

Veranda Solar is working on some solar panels that can hang outside an apartment window, sucking up solar rays to power devices inside. They're estimated to cost $400 to $600 when they're released, but there's no word on just how much power you can expect to get from them. They could be the wave of the future, we'll see.
