Nanosolar, Inc., is focused on making solar electricity ubiquitous through 
new solar-cell technology with profitable customer economics and 
unprecedented production volume scalability.

Unprecedented cost advantages result from its solar cells being two orders 
of magnitude thinner than those commonly found on the market today as well 
as the economics of simply being able to print them using the company's 
proprietary nanostructured semiconductor paint. Unprecedented production 
volume scalability results from the high throughput possible with 
inexpensive non-vacuum roll-to-roll printing processes.

Nanosolar's products are designed to streamline integration, distribution, 
and installation. Depending on a customer's system configuration, this can 
realize significant further total-system cost savings.
