Nanosolar, maker of thin-film CIGS solar cells, is predicting that it will hit full grid parity by 2015. Grid parity means that the electricity provided by Nanosolar will be cheap as grid supplied power, without the need for tax breaks. In 2006, Nanosolar received a $42 million grant from … Continue reading
Nanosolar thin film solar panels are powering a new solar farm at the Camp Perry Ohio National Guard Base in Port Clinton, Ohio. The new project, which was led by Ramanoff Electric, consists of 2,750 of Nanosolar’s thin film solar panels. Total output is 538 kW of electricity. … Continue reading
Nanosolar solar cells Nanosolar this week announced some pretty sizeable orders for its thin film solar cells and also said that they expect to match solar industry cost leaders within a few years. Their new orders could be for as much as 1 gigawatt of solar panels over … Continue reading
Solyndra, makers of cylindrical thin film solar cells, this week signed a deal with Southern California Edison (SCE) to install solar systems on the roofs of 18 big box retail stores and industrial buildings. When complete in 2011, the photovoltaic solar arrrays will provide 16.2 megawatts of electricity for SCE.
Nanosolar came out with flurry of announcements today, after months and months of quiet time for the company. And the announcements were pretty big – Nanosolar’s thin film CIGS solar cells have hit 16.4% efficiency (verified by the DoE’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory), which is currently the highest efficiency … Continue reading
Earth2Tech has noted that there hasn’t been much news from the thin film company Nanosolar lately. I haven’t seen much from Nanosolar either – they’re one of the companies I try to keep a close watch on. So Reuters decided to check it out and try to find … Continue reading
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 … Continue reading
This week, Nanosolar showed off its new solar cell printing press, which they claim is the first solar cell production tool capable of producing up to one gigawatt of solar cells per year.
