Cost-effective thinner Solar Cell by Twin Creeks

Twin Creeks Technologies claims that they can produce solar cells for about half the price of the ones currently in the market.

The key is thinness: wafers produced on Twin Creeks are less than one-tenth as thick as conventional wafers.

They can offer thinner solar cells for about 40 cents per watt, but as efficient as thicker ones at 80 cents per watt.

Hyperion, a manufacturing system developed by Twin Creeks Technologies, solves the problem of thick wafers with a technique called Proton Induced Exfoliation (PIE).
