Nanosolar Ships First Commercial Panels

Nanosolar Inc. has shipped its first set of commercial panels to Beck Energy. The panels will be installed at a plant located on a former landfill owned by one of the largest waste management companies in Eastern Germany.

The project will employ the Nanosolar Utility Panel in combination with systems technology and services from Beck Energy. The initial capacity of the project is 1 megawatt.

“This is the first time that a solar electricity cell and panel has been designed entirely and specifically for utility-scale power generation,” said Martin Roscheisen, CEO of Nanosolar. “It will set the standard for green power generation at utility scale.”

Roscheisen also announced through Nanosolar’s corporate blog that the first three commercial panels the company produced will not be delivered. The first will be on display at Nanosolar, the second is available to the public via eBay auction and the third will be donated to the Tech museum in San Jose.
