The article focuses on Tucson, Arizona-based Global Solar Energy LLC. The company says that it has refined its thin-film flexible photovoltaic cell to the point where it can produce solar panels at one-third to one-half the cost of the current industry standard. Mike Gering, president and chief executive officer (CEO) of the firm, says that they are sold out for the next year at a price that ensures they are profitable. The company opened its new 40-megawatt capacity factory on March 6, 2008.
