Alta Devices Solar Energy Technology – (em)Powering the Unplugged World

At Alta, we believe that solar energy should be economically competitive with other sources of energy, without government subsidies.   We’ve developed a technology that we think does that.  Based on gallium-arsenide, our solar cells are thin, light and flexible and hold the world record for being the most efficient at converting the sun’s energy to electricity.  These are the characteristics that not only create an economically compelling source of clean energy, but also make it possible to capture the sun’s energy almost anywhere. Join us here at our blog to learn more about our views on the world’s energy framework and how solar energy can play an important long-term role in that framework.  We’ll share updates on our technology and offer insight into the advantages of our approach to solar and the opportunities we are creating for entirely new energy generation solutions. – See more at:
