Miasole in California
Miasole is another thin-film solar panel manufacturer that has started producing panels using cells made from copper, indium, gallium, and selenide (CIGS). It says that its custom manufacturing process yields low costs and high efficiency. The company was able to finance its first manufacturing facility through private sources of capital, such as venture capitalists, private equity, and hedge funds. The Silicon Valley company in August signed a supply agreement with Chinese renewable energy project developer Juwi Solar.
