Paper Abstract

A processing line fabricating 2 1/2 feet by 5 feet amouphous silicon based monolithic modules is now operational in a limited or batch mode, and is described in this paper. In full operation, this processing line is expected to produce 175,000 modules per year or the equivalent of 10 megawatts (peak). Production cost estimates (fully loaded cost) with the plant in full operation are expected around $1.00 per peak watt. This means that a PV power station using these modules and assuming an equivalent balance-of-system cost in a high insolation region will product electricity for about 12 cents per kilowatt-hour.
