The Solopower Advantage lies in a unique approach to manufacturing technology.
Solopower’s proprietary electrochemical process for CIGS solar cell formation is uniquely differentiated from Si-based PV and alternate thin film PV technologies. SoloPower™ technology enables the cost-effective fabrication of devices that yield high voltage, good carrier collection and high conversion efficiency.
The SoloPower™ electroplating method provides near 100% materials utilization in a low cost, roll-to-roll process. High materials utilization and low cost equipment coupled with high efficiency cells with extremely thin active layers result in substantial competitive advantage to SoloPower™ technology over alternative materials and techniques.
Some of the key advantages of the SoloPower™ approach are:
• Capability to deposit films on large areas as well as a variety of shapes and forms
• Continuous processing with high throughput using low cost equipment
• Excellent compositional control
• High material utilization
• Minimal waste generation
Solopower’s unique and proprietary technology is a major break-through in low-cost, high-quality, high-volume manufacturing and commercialization of CIGS-based photovoltaics.
