Salem, Utah [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] International Automated Systems, Inc. (IAUS) has finished its first high-volume run of its new thin-film lens solar panels. Nearly 1,000 kilowatts (kW) of IAUS’s solar panels were manufactured in a short 24-hour run. On a 24/7 operating schedule, an estimated 350 megawatts (MW) of IAUS panels can be produced annually. In comparison, a traditional photovoltaic (PV) solar module manufacturing plant with a yearly capacity equal to IAUS would cost an estimated $840 million to construct. IAUS claims its thin-film solar lens can thus be produced at a fraction of the cost of today’s traditional PV solar panels.
