Construction is to start in November, and is scheduled to be completed at the end of 2010. The roughly 93 000 square meter manufacturing plant, Solar Technologies FZE, will be able to produce solar panels of up to 5.7 square meters.

Dilip Rahulan, Chairman and CEO of Solar Technologies:

The mission of Solar Technologies is to accelerate the adoption of solar photovoltaic by rapidly expanding manufacturing capacity and significantly reducing the cost of solar modules through innovations and manufacturing excellence.

    So, does this mean our energy money will once again be going to the Middle East? After all, they’ll probably be able to scale their plant so huge their manufacturing costs will be far below ours. That is, if we ever get the ball rolling in our country.

    Let the Arabs pound sand. We need to go with Pickens Plan. With all the DOE funding,one years amount could be used to set up these towers (as in Spain)on federal lands in the southwest and plugging into the grid. Don’t bail out detroit unless they make 50% of their fleets going forward as CNG & hybrid or fuel cell….and no exports for GM of hummers and the like

    you are going to see some oil-rich countries in that region really flexing their muscles in solar soon. The Saudi’s are gearing up for some enormous solar thermal plants
