← 'Major discovery' from MIT primed to unleash solar revolution

I wonder if this could easily be scaled up to industrial-sized applications such as solar or wind power plants, in addition to smaller "off-the-grid" self-powered home applications. If it could, it seems like it would be the perfect solution to most everyday energy needs. When you aren't drawing much power, your home could use its internal system, but when you need more power (such as when the air conditioner comes on), it could supplement the off-the-grid system with electricity from a larger facility using this same technology.
