The Department of Energy has determined that it is critical for the U.S. to develop it’s own sources of solar panel manufacturing to not be dependent on overseas parties for our energy future. To achieve our Net-Zero Carbon goals, we will have to quadruple our annual solar installation rate.

To do this responsibly, America can no longer rely on overseas solar panels made with coal-fired power plants and forced labor. Fortunately, Ohio manufacturers are producing a homegrown alternative with the strong support of the U.S. Department of Energy: CdTe.

“It is clear America must lead the charge toward a cleaner and affordable renewable energy future for the 21st Century. Northern Ohio continues to innovate in this space and is revolutionizing the solar industry. Today Cadmium Telluride is already 40 percent of utility solar in the US. As Cadmium Telluride technology advances, firms such as Toledo Solar will play an important role in expanding this technology to new markets, preserving America’s energy security, and creating the good-paying jobs of the future.”

CdTe is a Utility Scale Proven Solution

More Power Output per hour than any other solar panel.
Made in the U.S. since the late 1990's.
Invented in Toledo Ohio by First Solar Inc.
Make up over 40% Utility Solar Energy in the U.S.
8% of the solar panels made in the world every year
Lowest Energy & Carbon Footprint in the industry
Provides for an ESG-Positive portfolio
100% Supply Chain Compliance with CA SB657.

 Toledo Solar is proud to provide CdTe technology to the Residential, Commercial, Building-Integrated and Automotive-integrated markets. 


“The Department of Commerce remains firmly committed to taking strong, decisive action to target entities that are enabling human rights abuses in Xinjiang or that use U.S. technology to fuel China’s destabilizing military modernization efforts. We will continue to aggressively use export controls to hold governments, companies, and individuals accountable for attempting to access U.S.-origin items for subversive activities in countries like China, Iran, and Russia that threaten U.S. national security interests and are inconsistent with our values.”
Gina Raimondo
U.S. Secretary of Commerce

Now, more than ever, solar investors must maintain an ESG-positive portfolio that includes their supply chain. This became especially clear in June and July 2021, when the Biden administration banned imports from at least 10 Chinese-based silicon solar panel suppliers using forced labor in their supply chain. 

Today, under serious ESG standard audits, the true environmental and human rights costs are now impossible to ignore.

To meet the ever-growing demand for clean energy, we need an ethical, efficient and proven alternative that’s made in America.  That solution is CdTe PV Solar.

The world’s solar power surge depends on polysilicon from factories in Xinjiang, the region at the center of China’s crackdown on Uyghurs and other Muslim minorities. No one really knows what’s going on inside the facilities.

"CadTel annual production can be increased at least by a factor of 10 through focused and coordinated research and development, and CadTel photovoltaics has the potential to meet all of the country’s new electricity demands over the next 20 years"
Dr. Michael Heben
Harold McMaster Chair In Photovoltaics at University of Toledo
“While already enjoying great success in the marketplace, recent scientific developments make it clear that CdTe PV has significantly more potential for dramatically higher module efficiency, lower cost, increased lifetime energy and more rapid production. This is all achievable with the concerted cooperation and investment that will be pursued by US-MAC.”
Martin Keller
Director of the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory
