Current lede is gibberish[edit]

I'm here to learn about the topic, so I am not sure how to fix it without introducing error but....if anyone is following this page, please at least try to fix the grammar. Also, how can it also be called a photovoltaic cell if it is a type of photovoltaic cell? Seem like one of those statements is partly wrong Elinruby (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 00:03, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

Hasn't been updated since 2016 in many sections[edit]

Factual numbers like cell efficiencies, prices per watt, or deployed world capacities, do not appear for any date after about 2012-2016 in various parts of the article. Some parts describe "forecasts" for 2017. Edits from someone who's conversant with 2019 efficiencies, market makeup, and prices (and can cite references for them) could really benefit this article.

"Solar Cell" or "Photovoltaic"?[edit]

Sorry, is this article about "solar" cells or about photovoltaic cells/photovoltaic devices? Because they are not the same thing, and when I was last editing this article (re-writing it, really), my edits reflected this. If you don't know that they're not the same thing, or can't understand how they would be two different things, it seems likely that you should not be editing this article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:16, 29 June 2019 (UTC)
