About Quantum Solar Power Corporation
Quantum Solar Power Corporation is developing a "Next Generation Device" (NGD™) solar cell technology. Quantum's NGD™ is a patent pending, laboratory model that utilizes a new approach to solar power conversion with the potential to remove the necessity of utilizing expensive silicon semiconductor-based technologies. We believe Quantum's NGD™ technology has the potential to match the efficiency of crystalline silicon PV at the cost of thin film PV. The anticipated NGD™ technology is free of any rare-earth element dependencies found in other current solar technologies. We believe Quantum has the potential to create solar cells (through manufacturing partnerships) at significantly less cost per watt than current technology.
