Is there a way to make biodegradable solar panels?

    It is possible, but not in a traditional way.  Scientists have found a way to “hack” the DNA of tobacco plants, allowing a virus to spread through the plants which reprograms them to create artificial chromosphores, which turn light into highly powered electrons.

    Once the plants reach maturity, scientists would need to chop up the plants and then extract the structures.  Then, they would be dissolved in a liquid solution and could be sprayed over glass or plastic in order to create solar power.  This type of solar cell is not made to last very long; instead, it would be used as a cheap and transportable temporary power source.

    It will probably be several years before these types of solar cells because scientists have not yet proven that the cells can turn light into energy.
