Uriel Solar is a new start-up company that will manufacture a game-changing thin-film photovoltaic solar panel based on CdTe (Cadmium Telluride), a binary semiconductor that is an exceptional solar absorber. With a novel process (patent-pending), and a unique structure (patent-pending) that is dramatically different from every other CdTe thin-film technology currently on the market, Uriel will redefine commercial solar. This new structure will provide the highest power efficiency, comparable to the highest crystalline silicon efficiency on the market today, with the lowest production cost per Watt of any thin-film competitor.
These two driving forces, cost per Watt and power efficiency, will make Uriel Solar the most competitive solar panel manufacturer for the foreseeable future. In addition, the flexibility of Uriel's manufacturing approach opens the door to further improvements down the road, unlike many other thin-film technologies.
These new generation panels could supply the United States with a significant fraction of its electrical energy needs.
