Ascent Solar Awarded Two Company Patents


Ascent Solar Technologies Inc., a manufacturer of flexible, thin-film, PV modules located in Thornton, Colo., says it was recently issued the second of two U.S. patents regarding the company's solar manufacturing process.

The company's PV modules can be directly integrated into its EnerPlex-brand consumer products and off-grid applications.

‘In conjunction with U.S. patent 9,209,322 issued earlier this month and pending applications, Ascent secures an avenue of intellectual property rights covering multiple opportunities for improved processes and performance of the company's energy products,’ says Joseph Armstrong, founder and chief technology officer of Ascent Solar.

The thin-film modules are made with materials that are more flexible and versatile than traditional solar panels, the company says, providing a wide range of application opportunities.
