Sharp Lines Up Utility Project For Its Thin Films

Abstract:
Sharp has lined up a customer who is building a 5-megawatt power plant featuring Sharp's new amorphous silicon thin films.

Cleantech America has broken ground on the project, which is located in California's Central Valley town of Mendota. San Francisco-based Cleantech America plans to complete the project by the end of the year and sell electricity from the plant to the Pacific Gas and Electric Co.

The power plant is the first publicly announced project for Sharp's thin-film business. Sharp has been seeking customers for its second-generation thin films, which use a layer of amorphous silicon and another layer of microcrystalline silicon to turn sunlight into electricity.
