Advanced Solar Photonics Announces New Thin-Film Module Production Plant

Advanced Solar Photonics announced the SolarFab Production Plant. This thin-film production is set to pilot in April 2009, with full run capability in late 2010.

Lake Mary, Fl., April 9, 2009 - Advanced Solar Photonics, (ASP), the cutting-edge developer of laser marking, scribing, edge deletion and edge isolation systems for the solar industry, has expanded to a 318,000 sq ft facility to build a solar panel thin-film module production plant called SolarFab'. In April, the pilot line will be up and running with full production scheduled to ramp up by late 2010 with the ability to continue to increase in capacity. This opportunity will create approximately 200 green jobs in Florida.


With the dependence on foreign oil, environmental degradation and the vulnerability of power networks, SolarFab' is committed to developing ASP's thin-film SunPanels' for the greater use of clean energy alternatives such as solar power. ASPs' thin-film SunPanels' will be scalable and are expected to be able to reach grid parity by 2011 due to ASPs' patented manufacturing process and technologies which can increase efficiency levels and lower costs. Additionally, SolarFab' will help meet government and consumers' growing demand for increasingly efficient and cost- effective solar power.

"We understand manufacturing and building equipment - it's what we've done for the last decade. We have been studying this industry for a long time and are now ready to offer a complete laser solution that will achieve grid parity and help revolutionize the photovoltaic market," said Edgardo Rodriguez, Vice President of sales for Advanced Solar Photonics.

Reaching out to the photovoltaic industry, Advanced Solar Photonics and it's SolarFab' facility strive to keep manufacturing costs low utilizing proven patented technology geared to improve and lower the cost per kilowatt in thin-film panels.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
