So you are looking at about 100 watts per square meter (I'll bet they're not cheap though!!)...but if you covered the hood, roof and made a solar screen for the windshield and back hatch (glancing at the "insight encyclopedia") it looks like you may have about 3 square meters of useable space.Two new thin-film solar modules developed by BP Solarex break previous performance records. The company's 0.5-square-meter module has a 10.8% conversion efficiency—the highest in the world for similar thin-film modules. Its 0.9-square-meter module achieves 10.6% efficiency and a power output of 91.5 watts—the highest in the world for a thin-film module.
___Good LuckResearchers from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the University of California, and MIT have engineered a single material that contains three bandgaps and is capable of capturing more than 50 percent of the sun's energy. The researchers made the material by forcing oxygen into a zinc-manganese-tellurium crystal. The oxygen split the crystal's band gap and formed a third one of its own.
The material could lead to relatively inexpensive, highly efficient solar cells that would be much simpler to make than today's high-end multijunction solar cells.
