Solar Firms Invest in Photovoltaic Production Too Valuable to Outsource
Solar Industry
Major solar module and cell manufacturers remain unlikely to outsource a significant portion of their production and thereby establish a fabless business model, according to new analysis from IHS. Although some draw comparisons between the photovoltaic industry and the semiconductor industry — where many players have gone fabless — the drive for competitive advantage among top-tier cell and module makers will keep manufacturing technology in-house and under wraps.

One had a "field of things like radar dishes," and another included a "600-foot tower." The influx of outside companies seeking solar profit led Joy to ask, "Why not just set up solar arrays that can provide power for people in the local community and offset their electric bills?"
