About Toledo Solar
Toledo Solar continues an American success story
American engineers at Bell Labs demonstrated the first photovoltaic solar cell in 1954. Four years later, NASA launched solar panels into space. In 1984, Solar Cells Inc commercialized thin-film Cadmium Telluride solar panels in partnership with the University of Toledo, later resulting in the formation of First Solar Inc (FSLR NASDAQ). Today, CdTe technology powers 40% of the domestic utility-scale PV solar market and is expected to reach 60% in the next several years. CdTe Solar PV modules have proven themselves over the last several decades as the most robust, powerful, longest lasting solar technology in the world.
Toledo Solar now brings this technology for the first time to the residential and commercial building markets. Additionally we have brought next generation transparent CdTe solar films under grants from the U.S. Department of Energy. We are now also developing high-output transparent windows for the building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) market, and high-output solar products for the electric vehicle automotive integrated photovoltaics (AIPV) market.
