EXASUN was founded in 2012 as a spin-off of LineSolar, a company that focusses on the development of CPV technology (for solar farms). EXASUN is financed with private funds only. The company therefore has a strong balance position.
Lowest cost of solar electricity (cost/kWh) are secured by applying high quality materials that lengthen the lifetime of the modules. EXASUN can produce cost-effectively as a result of its automated production process, low overhead costs and the avoidance of costly sea transport from Asia. EXASUN will, thanks to an intensive R&D program, launch several new products in the next 12 months.
