XsunX Plans Multi-MW Thin Film Solar Cell Factory for U.S.

XsunX, Inc. is planning to build a multi-megawatt (MW) production facility in the U.S. to supply the rising domestic demand for solar cell products for integration into buildings and houses (BIPV).

“We are planning the manufacturing line around a 5-megawatt modular design which allows us to scale from 5 to 25 to 50 megawatts of production by adding new 5-megawatt lines,” said Joe Grimes, XsunX COO. “There are a number of states that have mandated certain minimum renewable energy production standards and the type of knowledge-based jobs that our facility could bring to a region may prove very attractive to regional and state policy makers,” said Grimes. “We plan to build our first facility where we find the best access to government support and a qualified work force. We are paying special attention to opportunities in California, Massachusetts and, of course, Colorado where our current facilities are located.” “The growing national and international market opportunities for building integrated photovoltaics clearly support this decision to expand the XsunX business model from a purely licensing and equipment sales model into one of manufacturing the solar devices ourselves here in the U.S.,” said Tom Djokovich, CEO of XsunX.
