Skyline Solar, a manufacturer of High Gain Solar (HGS) arrays for the commercial, industrial, government and utility markets, says that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued patent number 7,709,730, which covers fundamental aspects of Skyline Solar's HGS architecture.
The patent issuance makes Skyline Solar one of the first companies to receive patent approval under the USPTO's Green Technology Pilot Program, the company notes.
The expedited examination provided by the USPTO program highlights the commitment by the U.S. government to maintaining leadership in green technology innovation in the face of increasing competition from other countries. Traditionally, green technology companies could expect to wait several years before being issued a patent.
