At 14% efficiency, it is not bad for a thin-film Solar. I sincerely hope it doesn't become another Solyndra! @Himanshu_Gupta: I agree, R&D in US and manufacturing in low cost Asian locations is the only way. But the higher capital raised makes me suspect STion is spending a lot on automation, making a case for US manufacturing location. MP Divakar

How does this technology different than other manufactures. The strategy of having RnD in US and manufacturing in Asian countries does make more sense.

Its a good investment and if some company comes up penetrating solar panels in the domestic light-wattage needs then it will be a win win situations for all including mother earth.
