Bill Nye Backed Company May Dramatically Cut Solar Costs

Using a particle accelerator and Float Zone Silicon, Rayton Solar, a company backed by Bill Nye and others, plans to produce high-efficiency silicon wafers just 3 microns thick, slashing costs for solar panels by up to 60%.

Bill Nye-backed solar company aims to cut the cost of solar by 60%

By using a particle accelerator and Float Zone Silicon, Rayton Solar plans to produce high-efficiency silicon wafers just 3 microns thick, slashing costs and waste.

Here is a copy of the progressive company’s press release: “Rayton Solar has bridged the gap between particle accelerator technology and solar energy production to create a revolutionary silicon cutting technique. This technique is projected to reduce solar panel manufacturing costs by upwards of 60% compared to industry standards, while making them 25% more efficient, and resulting in a very cost-effective source of energy.”

Rayton Solar plans to test crowdfunding to raise capital for the next phase of this project.
