Early this year, Solyndra started showing off its tubular thin film solar cells and announced a bunch of big contracts to boot. Now Nanosolar, the best known thin film maker, our apparently getting themselves in a bit of a snit over it. According to Greentechmedia, Nanosolar CEO Martin Roscheisen wrote an article in his blog in which he took aim at an unnamed competitor (but it clearly sounded like Solyndra) – basically saying that they could do the same thing if they wanted to, but they don’t want to.
“After all, if there is something that makes business sense about the tubular product concept, we’d surely be the ideal company to manufacture it at lowest cost and bring it to the market in volume!”
