Over the holidays I found out that my friend B.J. “Billy” Stanberry has been busy with his solar power startup, called HelioVolt. Billy has come up with a new way to both increase the output of solar cells, as well as a method for making it very easy to apply / install / almost “paint” the solar cells onto a target building (or surface)… and due to the innovative nature of his process, he is being recognized for it… TIME Best Inventions 2006″>Time has awarded him one of the “Best Inventions 2006”, and the Wall Street Journal has awarded him two Wall Street Journal Innovation Honors. Congratulations Billy! More than just adding new solar products to the marketplace, Billy is changing the dynamics of what is possible with solar power.
