The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering is now managing and operating the former Veeco facility which features a 100 kW prototyping and demonstration line for next-generation copper indium gallium selenide thin film solar cells.
“We are excited to have CNSE take over the management and operation of the former Veeco facility and retain 17 green collar jobs here in Halfmoon, Saratoga County,” said Saratoga County Economic Development Corporation president Dennis Brobston, in a statement.
The CNSE Halfmoon facility is part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s SunShot Initiative and will provide a pilot line for proof-of-concept prototyping. The Center will also support the U.S. Photovoltaic Manufacturing Consortium, a more than $300 million public-private collaboration headquartered at CNSE.
