+ - A Bit of Cream & Zeppelin May Increase Efficiency of Solar Panels->

Submitted by ClockEndGooner
ClockEndGooner (1323377) writes "Local solar panel farms in your area might be able to take music requests in the near future, as researchers at Queen Mary University of London and Imperial College London found that playing loud pop and rock music improves the performance of solar cells. According to the researchers, "The high frequencies and pitch found in pop and rock music cause vibrations that enhanced energy generation in solar cells containing a cluster of 'nanorods', leading to a 40 per cent increase in efficiency of the solar cells.""
