recent advancements in solar cells

A satellite in geostationary orbit is in sunlight full time, except 2 brief and very predictable times a year when it passes through Earth's shadow. With multiple satellites they won't be passing through the shadow at the same time. Baring a massive improvement in electrical storage, ground based solar can't touch that availability.
