Solar PV Manufacturer Wins CleanStart Competition

Sacramento, California [] Last night CleanStart held its final round of competition November 15th at the Alumni Center at California State University (CSU) to allocate $50,000 in prize money. The First Place ($25,000) was awarded to NuEdison, of San Jose, which provides proprietary technology that lowers the cost of photovoltaic (PV) modules by reducing the use of silicon, enabling greater solar electricity to be produced by the industry’s limited capacity. Its modules are suited for flat roofs and traditional solar electric applications as well as vertical surfaces and north-facing roofs. Second Place ($15,000) went to Mariah Power of Reno, NV, for residential wind appliances; Third Place ($10,000) went to High Merit Thermoelectrics of Davis, CA, for compact devices that convert heat directly into electrical energy.
