Florida-based Advanced Solar Photonics (ASP) has revealed its plans to break ground on its SolarFab this year following its expansion to a 318,000 sq ft facility. The SolarFab, a thin-film module production plant is scheduled to ramp up production to 40MW by late 2010, with the capability to expand capacity further down the line. The new production facility will focus on development of ASP’s thin-film SunPanels, which are scalable and are expected to be able to reach grid parity by 2011 due to ASP’s patented manufacturing process and technologies.
“We understand manufacturing and building equipment – it’s what we’ve done for the last decade,” said Edgardo Rodriguez, Vice President of sales for Advanced Solar Photonics. “We have been studying this industry for a long time and are now ready to offer a complete solution that will achieve grid parity and help revolutionize the photovoltaic market.”
