XsunX Update: Thin-film Solar Start-up's Manufacturing Facility on Track

Last fall, I reported on a California-based thin-film solar start-up, XsunX, who were developing a line of glass-integrated transparent glass-like thin-film solar panels. This post has since recieved quite a lot of hits, and given readerss apparent interest in XsunX, here's an update, courtesy of RenewableEnergyAccess.com (REA):

REA reports this week that XsunX is heading toward commercialization of its products through progress on an initial manufacturing line. Over the past few years, the Aliso Viejo, California-based company has been moving toward commercializing its glass-integrated thin-film photovoltaic (PV) product.

XsunX is apparently now ready to begin commercial manufacturing of its product.

The company has announced plans to begin assembly and installation of its hybrid manufacturing system at a facility in Golden, Colorado, along with laser and ancillary production and product development equipment, in the first week of July. Tom Djokovich, XsunX CEO, said the initial production line will have an output of below 1 MW per year but will be important in validating the company's technology to the public, solar industry and prospective licensees.

See this previous post for more on XunX's Power Glass transparent PV product.
