Company description

With the annual global demand for energy expected to double by mid century,

and triple by the end of the century, current carbon-based technologies cannot

meet the growing energy demand without destabilizing the climate and

endangering U.S. energy security. As such, the solar market is expected to reach

$100B by 2013, with "inorganic thin film technology" set to grow the fastest.

Skye_Rite is a leading edge developer of low cost, inorganic thin-film

photovoltaic (PV) solar cells, made with earth abundant material and

revolutionary, patent-pending nanocrystal ink. This technology overcomes the

limitations of other solar technologies and provides the following benefits:

1) Low-cost of production

2) Material availability for large scale deployment

3) Flexibility in application to uneven surfaces

4) High efficiency (>15%)

5) Easily transportable

6) Non-toxic and earth friendly materials

Skye_Rite is the "rite" transformational energy- related technology, at the "rite"

time, and at the "rite" price point.
