Ascent Solar has successfully begun initial production of monolithically integrated flexible CIGS modules from its Fab 2 production plant located in Thornton, Colorado.
Farhad Moghadam, president and CEO of Ascent Solar, said, “Ascent Solar is the first company to commence regular production of monolithically integrated lightweight thin-film CIGS modules using a plastic substrate. This milestone marks the initiation of our regular production capability and our factory rampup based on market demand. Initial production from FAB 2 is producing 10.5% efficient modules with peak module aperture efficiency as high as 11.9%, which gives Ascent a very competitive product across our target market opportunities.”
