I think the solar panels is meant more in the sense for charging the batteries on the ground while stationary, not powering the plane in the air.

Maybe instead of the wing covering material the solar panels can be implemented, advancements in this technology aims to make solar more flexible, not sure where they're at yet, but it's coming.

All sorts of efficiency breakthroughs have been achieved the past year with solar tech, i'ts a matter of now just waiting for it to be commercially available.
