XsunX Selects Facility For New Thin Film Solar Module Manufacturing Operations

April 06, 2008 by Jeff Shepard

XsunX, Inc., a solar technology company engaged in the build-out of its multi-megawatt thin film photovoltaic (TFPV) solar manufacturing facilities, announced that it has completed negotiations and entered into a lease for its new manufacturing facility to be located in Oregon, U.S.A.

The existing building, located in the city of Wood Village just east of Portland, Oregon, provides approximately 90,000 square feet for the company’s integrated TFPV manufacturing operations. The location is said to provide strategic access to shipping and transportation corridors, and sufficient amounts of clean hydro electric power to operate the company’s manufacturing systems.

"We are happy to announce that we have selected a building, entered into a lease, and that we can begin efforts to prepare that facility for our manufacturing systems," stated Tom Djokovich, CEO for XsunX. "We conducted a design review of the facility and its suitability for our planned manufacturing system and were pleased with the results. Had we built a facility from scratch, it would have been less of a challenge to design floor space specifically to meet our needs; however, in the end we believe it was the correct choice to work with existing buildings in an effort to reduce start-up and operating costs. Overall, our timeline was to complete the lease process near the end of March and we are still on track with our efforts to establish our first 25 mega-watts of thin-film solar module manufacturing capabilities."
