DayStar Technologies Outlines Path to Achieve Gigawatt-Scale Production of Solar Cells ...

DayStar Technologies, Inc. announced today availability of a white paper on its Web site.

HALFMOON, N.Y., Aug. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- DayStar Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: DSTI) announced today availability of a white paper on its Web site which demonstrates how CIGS solar cell technology on flexible metal substrates can be an alternative to silicon-wafer-based solar cells and how CIGS technology can be uniquely scaled up to large factory production volumes because of strong advantages in capital cost, manufacturing throughput and yield.

The paper details how DayStar's CIGS based Photovoltaic Foil(TM) can reach Gigawatt-scale manufacturing using a continuous inline process, ultimately reaching estimated costs at approximately $1 per watt at the system level due to efficiencies and economies-of-scale.

The authors also call for vertical integration of production operations, examining a "solar city" concept that integrates each element of the supply chain in a single factory setting.

The White Paper, presented by Dr. John Tuttle, CEO, DayStar Technologies, in Barcelona, Spain, at the recently held 20th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition, can be found at .

About DayStar Technologies, Inc.

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
