I read an interesting article in Innovation Daily News. Future Solar Windows Will Provide Power With a View. Researchers at MIT have developed a photovoltaic technology that turns window glass into an energy collector. This is a transparent solar cell technology coated on the window glass that is then wired to a voltage controller. Best applied to the inside of double-paned windows.

Here's the link if you'd like to know more.

That's a nice innovation. It appears to be potentially inexpensive to make and deploy. And it serves the purpose of coatings people already deploy on glass. Very cool.

All I need to know is when and where can I get it!
Decisions, decisions.
I tried a couple of usernames and have finally settled on:
