US Energy Security
THE ROAD TO U.S. ENERGY INDEPENDENCE RUNS THROUGH OHIO
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.
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.
WHY AMERICA NEEDS A SOLAR ALTERNATIVE
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.
DOE SUPPORTS A CdTe POWERED FUTURE
Toledo Solar is a founding member of the U.S. Department of Energy’s recently formed U.S. Manufacturing of Advanced Cadmium Telluride Photovoltaics (US-MAC) Consortium to scale-up and accelerate innovation and investment in domestically manufactured CdTe solar panels as a matter of national energy security.
