Corning Lands First Commercial Order for Innovative Product

According to a recent Web article, Corning Incorporated has created solar photovoltaic glass that it says is lighter, more efficient, and stronger than thin-film solar modules. The company is reporting that it just received its first commercial order for the product.

The order is the culmination of three years of development and test marketing.

Corning also says the photovoltaic glass can increase current thin-film module efficiency by as much as 30 percent. Additionally, it is promoted as being 50 times stronger with less than half the thickness of the glass commonly used today in thin-film PV modules. 

NFRC welcomes your thoughts on this topic.
