Conventional photovoltaic machinery, including traditional silicone panels, fails to address efficiency problems. Recent technological advances suggest less metal-specific reliance, but plastic substrates are bound by cost-inefficiency. Photovoltaic paint effectively dissociates from metal dependency and relies on a combination p-n junction diode principle/thermoelectric effect to generate electrical energy from solar exposure. Replicating the junction is accomplished via multi-polymer layers of crystalline-silica water-based paint with ionic solution concentration gradient overlap, reconstructing the depletion zone and, in thermal respects, construes the thermoelectric effect via replication of a heavily modified thermocouple. Experimentation revealed the largest gradient (50%-10%) of ionic solution, specifically, sodium-chloride solution, per paint solution liter generated the largest electrical energy yield (Cf. control yielding none). Maintenance of a functional electro-conductive gradient is achieved with specialized, non-acidic solution, but the lifespan of the charge is virtually instantaneous. The experimentation yielded possible exploits for multi-polymer conduction layer advancement; however, the production of solar-receptive paints replicating the capture and distribution scheme of solar panels...
