What are some advantages of solar thin film?

    The main advantage of solar thin film technology is that it requires much less material make solar panels and has nearly the same efficiency as its thicker counterpart.  Some of the benefits of using less material to get nearly the same efficiency can be summed up in three parts.  First, less material means that the cost of solar cell production will decrease and make the technology a more realistic option.  Second, the carbon footprint associated with extraction of raw materials is reduced.  Third, weight is reduced which, is good for shipping and the structural integrity of objects that house solar panels (i.e. someones roof).
