Orionsolar is a developer of low cost solar energy using new generation dye cell photovoltaics. Dye cells generate electricity from solar energy using nano-sized titanium dioxide particles impregnated with dye, rather than from silicon or similar semiconductors. Orionsolar has developed new intellectual property which substantially reduces the cost of dye cells and increases the cell size.
