Solar Power Breakthrough -- IAUS Hits Milestone Previously Thought to be Impossible
SALEM, UTAH- International Automated Systems, Inc. [IAUS.OB] [IAUS: OTCBB] announced today that it has successfully finished its first high-volume run of its new breakthrough solar panels. Nearly 1,000 Kilowatts of IAUSís solar panels were manufactured in a short 24-hour run. On a 24/7 operating schedule, an estimated 350 Megawatts of IAUS panels can be produced annually. In comparison, a traditional photovoltaic (PV) solar module manufacturing plant with a yearly capacity equal to IAUS would cost an estimated $840 Million to construct.
IAUSís unique thin-film solar lens can be produced at a fraction of the cost of todayís traditional photovoltaic solar panels. IAUS believes its new product is the first solar power technology with legitimate potential to compete with gas and other fossil fuels in the immediate future. Low-cost energy produced by IAUSís new patented and patent-pending solar technology can be used to generate electricity or produce clean fuels such as hydrogen and green methanol (gasoline replacements) at a competitive price. Many experts had predicted that no solar power technology would likely accomplish this milestone before the year 2025.
IAUS plans to quickly expand its annual solar panel production capacity this year to 1 Gigawatt, which is enough to supply an estimated $2 Billion in sales per year.
"The discovery of economical solar energy is more valuable than oil," said Neldon Johnson, President and CEO of International Automated Systems, Inc. "The sunís energy is free, clean and virtually unlimited. IAUSís new solar technology is a discovery of historic proportions that we hope will revolutionize energy production throughout the world.Ē
The world energy market is $3 trillion dollars per year. This $3 trillion does not represent nearly 30% of the world that exists without electricity.
