UNI-SOLAR's triple-junction technology incorporates Nano-Crystalline silicon layers on a flexible stainless steel substrate and increases the cell's efficiency by about 50%, relative to current UNI-SOLAR cells in production.
United Solar's technology roadmap takes this ground-breaking technology into commercial production in 2012. The technological advancement drives meaningful reductions in the cost of installing a UNI-SOLAR solar energy system and will reduce the cost of generating solar electricity by over 20%. Ultimately, the company expects to offer solar energy systems that are capable of providing electricity at a cost below the utility grid.
