The company’s production process simplifies the production of thin-film solar panels, enhances production capacity and drives down the cost of solar-generated electricity.

“Today’s facility opening represents a milestone for Abound. We have moved into commercial production, which allows us to keep pace with demand from our customers as the market expands,” said Pascal Noronha, chief executive officer of Abound Solar. “We are now well positioned to deliver high-performing, cost-effective, solar modules that can accelerate clean energy usage around the world.”

“Congratulations to Abound Solar – a true Colorado success story of how renewable energy technologies can move from the lab to the marketplace,” said Colorado Governor Bill Ritter. “As we see local renewable energy companies expand operations and create jobs, we know that the New Energy Economy is leading Colorado forward, and will help Colorado to have a quick and strong recovery.”

“Abound Solar proves that we have the capability here in the United States to cost-effectively meet our energy needs, while protecting our climate,” said Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
