Solving Silicon PV’s Cost Barrier – Silicon PV wafers comprise 50% of the cost of a module and limit manufacturers’ cell efficiencies due to bulk quality and surface non-uniformities. 1366’s one-step Direct Wafer™ process solves these quality and cost barriers by providing manufacturers with a uniformly better wafer produced for a fraction of the cost.
