Emcore Corp. has entered into two definitive supply agreements for solar cell receivers in June for $29 million. These supply agreements incorporate advance deposits to ensure production priority for these customers. The end applications for the product to be delivered range from solar farm to commercial rooftop installations employing concentrating photovoltaic (CPV) technology. Production for these orders has commenced and shipments are scheduled to occur over the next 24 months.

Emcore has introduced a line of integrated CPV solar cell products optimized for operation from 500x to 1,000x concentration with a minimum average efficiency of 37 percent, which provide terrestrial systems integrators with a complete photovoltaic solution for their CPV systems. Emcore's CPV receiver is easily integrated into existing CPV systems and has emerged as the most desirable form in the industry. Emcore claims to be the first company to provide its customers with 20 years of performance warranty.
