This $10 Stock Will Unleash the Greatest Leap in the History of Energy…
And Its Stock Could Hand You 20,280% or More.
My name is James Stafford.

I’m the Founder and Intelligence Director at OilPrice.com.

I know that a 20,280% gain (that’s over four years) is a bold claim…

But it’s the only number you arrive at when you follow our research and intel to its logical conclusion.

I’ll explain in just a moment, but first let me tell you who we are…

At OilPrice I’ve built up a network of over 400 intelligence assets.

Energy “insiders” across the globe…

Intelligence operatives, investigative journalists, company executives…

All the way up to the heads of the U.S. Energy Information Administration and the International Energy Agency.

And here’s what I’m hearing…

The greatest leap in the history of energy is about to take place…

But it’s not going to happen in oil or natural gas…

Instead, it’s going to happen in solar.

A completely new type of solar.

One you’ve never heard of…

And one that doesn’t use a single atom of silicon.

I’ll explain…

Scientists and engineers have been trying to squeeze profitable energy out of silicon solar cells for 62 years.

What they’re starting to realize is… as you’ll see in a moment… that’s never going to happen.

When it comes to extracting energy from the sun – profitably – silicon is just not up to the task.

Unfortunately, as things stand today, 90% of the world’s solar cells are made from silicon.

But here’s where things are about to change in a big way…

There’s a new element – what I’ll call a “super crystal” – that will soon replace silicon, and transform an industry.

One day soon…

The world will look back and remember silicon solar cells as a failed experiment…

A technology that was stretched to its scientific limits… until it snapped.

Billions upon billions in government subsidies wasted. Dreams of a renewable energy revolution unfulfilled.

That’s because silicon is about to be replaced by this new material that, quite simply, can do things scientists have tried…

And failed to push silicon solar cells to do.

To understand the scope of this opportunity, consider the unique properties of this new alternative to silicon.

This miracle of science all begins with a materials science discovery about the rock you see here…

Let’s zoom in closer…

Closer still…

I’ll show you what’s inside this cube in a moment.

But what you’re looking at is the “super crystal” I’m talking about…

Something that’s an order of magnitude more powerful and efficient than silicon…

As the scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory put it, this “super crystal” has facets that “behave like billions of tiny solar cells, all connected in parallel.”

MIT Technology Review says it will “far outperform silicon”.

“Silicon probably won’t be replaced as the dominant solar material anytime soon, but it might not be too long before it gets a partner from a promising class of materials called perovskites”
From MIT article, note the anytime soon part.

I expect that’s still the same one he’s been running since October, we covered it here: https://www.stockgumshoe.com/reviews/oilprice-com/oilprice-say-this-10-stock-will-unleash-the-greatest-leap-in-the-history-of-energy/

Two years Later! It is most certainly perscovite they are talking about. this is a synthetic mineral and labs are constantly improving it. I have a weekly update and as far as I know solar panels are not yet on the market, so can’t give you a name. Will update if and when I know more.
