Company Details


Innovalight is focused on bringing high efficiency, low-cost solar modules to the marketplace. Enabling this manufacturing paradigm shift is the company's silicon ink, which has been in development since 2002. Historically, silicon has been processed either as a solid or as a gas. Using liquid based processing Innovalight will dramatically improve the cost and efficiency of today's solar modules.
