Making Solar Energy Economically Viable
Advocates of alternative energy face an inconvenient, but incontrovertible, fact:
It takes hugely rich government subsidies to make solar energy cost-competitive with conventional power.
Most people believe it’s going to be that way for many years to come. We think they’re going to be proven wrong.
That’s because we control a remarkable new thin-film growth process that could completely change the way solar cells are manufactured.
We’re replacing the traditional thermal vacuum processes, such as CVD and PECVD (chemical vapor deposition, plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition, etc.) for making solar cells with our liquid phase deposition (LPD) wet chemistry process.
We think LPD is the future of solar. It is at the core of everything we do. It results in solar cells of higher quality, and is safer, cleaner and less expensive than CVD. That’s why we’re using multiple LPD-based applications to make solar power cost-competitive with conventional power.
