Why waste water? These solar panels recycle greywater, produce energy

With support from the National Science Foundation, a multidisciplinary team is engineering solar panel technology that makes greywater reusable while creating thermal energy in the process. What is now wastewater would be used at least twice, cutting demand, and the free solar energy can be captured as well.
