The solar cells from Midsummer are free of cadmium, a toxic material usually used in CIGS and other thin film solar cells that is prohibited in certain countries and regions.
Midsummer’s technology makes it feasible to manufacture the solar cells locally. Local manufacturing will not only create domestic high tech jobs right where the end product is needed, but also a know-how and technology transfer of green technology.
Midsummer’s DUO manufacturing equipment has an annual capacity of 5 MW. By utilizing this capacity to generate electricity you can approximately achieve 5 GWh annually in Sweden. This capacity corresponds to an annual reduction by 5000 tons of carbon dioxide from the coal power plants. These numbers increase in regions with higher solar irradiation.
