MiaSole Begins Volume Production Of More-Efficient CIGS Solar Modules


MiaSole, a manufacturer of copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS) thin-film photovoltaic solar panels, says that modules featuring its latest efficiency breakthrough (13%) are now in volume production at its facility in California's Silicon Valley region.

This efficiency gain represents a 30% improvement since the beginning of the year, while over the same time frame, decreasing costs per watt by a similar amount, MiaSole adds.

MiaSole says it plans to continue working toward a cost structure that is competitive with top-tier solar manufacturers through the combination of a proprietary low-cost plasma vapor-deposition process, low capital expenditure, and the use of abundant and inexpensive raw materials.

The company adds that it has shipped more than 55 MW of its modules to date.
