Research is underway to answer this question and a major discovery has already been made. The new found
information does confirm GTAT has found a way to significant reduce the cost of solar dramatically.
I will be working on this an hope to have an update for all to enjoy as soon as I can.
“While solar is not expected to contribute meaningfully to revenues over the next year, it remains an important part of our portfolio. However, we continue to believe that for the solar industry to fully reach its potential, cost must come down dramatically. To this end, we have a deployed a new technology that we expect will significantly impact the economics of producing solar cells and modules. This technology was developed and comes out of a research operation we established in the Bay Area over a year ago to focus on advancing the state of the art and the design and assembly of solar cells and modules,” added Gutierrez.
