3. Abound Solar announced yesterday that it will stop producing its first-generation thin-film cadmium telluride photovoltaic modules “in order to accelerate the manufacturing process and equipment changes needed for the production launch of its next generation high-efficiency module.” Going on: “The suspension of first generation module production will result in the temporary reduction of approximately 180 permanent jobs from its Colorado facilities. Once manufacturing equipment has been modified and performance tested, Abound Solar expects to resume mass production with a 12.5-13 percent efficiency module by the end of 2012.” Abound Solar faces steep competition in this arena from the likes of First Solar and GE, which also produce CdTe PV modules (aka panels).
