Xunlight Corp. has been awarded $4.9 million from the State of Ohio's Research Commercialization Program to leverage its technology into Ohio-based manufacturing lines and bring new products to market.

The proposed project has three primary objectives: develop an improved, advanced thin-film solar-cell fabrication technology; develop an improved, advanced flexible solar module manufacturing process, with the necessary equipment; and develop advanced photovoltaic products targeted to markets to leverage the competitive characteristics of their thin-film solar cells.

‘This award will help us to continue our effort in building a high-productivity manufacturing facility in Ohio creating 'green collar' jobs,’ says Dr. Xunming Deng, president and CEO of Xunlight. ‘We are honored to be recognized by the Third Frontier Commission as among the best companies in Ohio for advanced technology development.’
