Boeing Wins Contract to Build Solar Cells for Renewable Energy

A SolFocus solar concentrator is populated with Spectrolab cells in each dish. Spectrolab has leveraged its expertise in space photovoltaic products to create solar cells with record-breaking efficiencies for Earth-based applications. The cells provided will be capable of generating more than 10 megawatts of electricity, enough to power about 4,000 U.S. homes.
