Here comes the sun

In sunny California, the state’s three major solar farms will be able to meet or exceed a 33 percent renewable energy mandate by 2020.

Solar panels

Solar panels consist of paper-thin silicon wafers with a layer of chemicals on top that can turn sunshine into electricity. Sandvik produces diffusion cassettes that are used in the production of crystalline silicon wafers.

The advanced powder metallurgical wire in the cassettes exceeds all other types in terms of process reliability, energy savings and lifespan, thanks to its unique properties, which include exceptional form stability and oxidation resistance.
