Scientists invent ’anti-solar panel’

Researchers from the University of California, Davis have built what they call an ’anti-solar panel’. While traditional solar panels work by capturing sunlight and converting it into energy, this anti-solar panel captures energy traveling from the Earth out into space. The system currently is able to capture around 25 per cent of the energy that a solar panel generates in a day.

Great - we need something to power our Solar-Freaking-Roadways at night 😏 Expect a Thunderf00t debunks video in 3..2..1...

Sound more like a terrestrial panels than anti solar panels

I have a 28 panel system on my home and during peak sunlight produces between 1000-1,200 kw per month which is not bad. What would be better and more efficient is a battery cell that collects and stores the energy for long periods of time and doesn't force you to sell it back to the local utility company for pennies on the dollar.

people investigate and be analytical before accepting new measures and theories to waste your precious tax payers money

With this technology, even socialist basement dwellers can be of use and generate power! 😂😂😂

sounds like a solar panel to me but it gets its energy from earth and not the sun

so it is even more worthless than solar panels got it

Sounds like one of those crowdfunding scams; Articles only made it sound worse too... Like I'm sure it technically works but it probably isn't going to be practical for almost every application

I wonder how efficient it can be since you still need heat to get this process going. Sounds a little perpetual motiony to me

Reality check: No actual plans, mechanisms, or discoveries were made here. A guy had an idea and shared it. This is a theory, though one grounded in factual basis. So if nothing new exists from a guy having a shower-thought, why is this newsworthy? I'm racking up the tally on the 'distraction from leftist embarrassment' column due to proximity of political events versus the actual date this theory was conceived versus reported.

Now if only they can fuse the two so it collects solar and earth energy at the same time, then maybe solar energy will be viable.

Minecraft logic right here, generating power with a mode 2 daylight sensor.
