Crystal Solar
was founded in 2008 and has developed a breakthrough manufacturing technology called Direct Gas to Wafer™ that allows for direct conversion of feedstock gas to mono crystalline silicon wafers by high throughput epitaxial growth.  By skipping the polysilicon, ingoting and wire-sawing steps altogether, our patented approach results not only in the lowest cost/watt for wafers but also significantly reduces the capital required to set up a manufacturing plant. 

These so called kerfless wafers have achieved well over 24% efficiency in customer trials and are now enabling existing crystalline cell and module makers to significantly enhance their power output while reducing cell making steps, thereby radically reducing the cost structure of PV solar panels.

Crystal Solar is located in Santa Clara, in the heart of Silicon Valley where it has a state of the art facility with a semi-automated pilot line producing these wafers. The company has a seasoned and experienced management team, a highly trained technical staff,  and have world class investors and partners with global reach, manufacturing excellence, and access to capital.
