AVA Solar, a manufacturer of low-cost, thin-film photovoltaic solar panels, has unveiled its new brand name: Abound Solar. The company explains that the new name demonstrates its the commitment to providing an abundance of low-cost solar panels to solar integrators around the globe.
Abound Solar's proprietary manufacturing technology was developed and incubated at Colorado State University over the last 15 years. Based upon its high-quality, low-cost manufacturing process, Abound Solar says it will enable its customers to reduce the cost of generating solar electricity to roughly the same cost as traditionally generated electricity.
This technical success, coupled with support from the U.S. Department of Energy and approximately $150 million of private investment, has enabled the company to create nearly 200 local jobs and build a fully automated, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Longmont, Colo.
