CaliSolar, a solar start-up that derives from research originally conducted at UC Berkeley, has come up with a way to make solar cells out of upgraded metallurgical silicon, which is less pure and less costly than the industry standard electrical grade silicon, according to Johnson, the company’s CEO, at a meeting at the Dow Jones Alternative Energy Innovations conference taking place this week.
