PPG awarded $2.1 million by DOE to help automate PV module manufacturing: Funding supports development of liqu...

The funding comes courtesy of DOE’s SunShot Initiative. 1 PPG will match each dollar committed by the DOE, resulting in a total public-private investment of approximately $4.3 million in the project. PPG is partnering with Flextronics International, Inc., a leading global solar module manufacturer, to design and test a pilot line at Flextronics’ Milpitas, Calif., facility that will produce 60- and 72-cell modules. “With the proposed manufacturing approach, we expect to increase module throughput by a factor of four at half the capital expense of the existing process," said Andy Meshanko, PPG market development manager, industrial coatings. "With these cost savings and more efficient module designs, we can advance the goal of achieving grid parity for solar power.” The PPG award is part of a $13 million investment in five projects to strengthen domestic solar manufacturing ...
