A new solar cell wafer created by Boeing subsidiary Spectrolab is projected to reduce customers' costs by 10% to 15% through improvements in design and manufacturing, the company says.

The new wafers are 50% larger than the previous Spectrolab wafers, allowing for more than three times more cells grown on each wafer, thus reducing costs.

Spectrolab notes that it has produced space solar cells for more than 55 years and ground-based products for the past 10 years.
