Rayton Solar to Present at CES as Finalist in ‘Extreme Tech Challenge’

Company to Demonstrate Technology to Leading Innovators, Including President and Chief Strategy Officer of Samsung Electronics

Los Angeles – December 20, 2017 – Rayton Solar, developer of revolutionary technology to manufacture solar energy materials that are more cost effective and efficient, today announced it will be presenting at CES 2018 in Las Vegas at the Extreme Tech Challenge, a highly selective competition that empowers early-stage companies to generate visibility and potential resources from leading innovators.

As part of the competition, Rayton Solar will present its technology January 11 at The Venetian hotel to Young Sohn, president and chief strategy officer of Samsung Electronics, Gary Shapiro, chief executive officer of the Consumer Technology Association, and Koichi Narasaki, chief digital officer and managing executive at leading Japanese insurer, Sompo Holdings. The top three companies move on to present at the final round to Sir Richard Branson on Necker Island.

“We are honored and excited to participate in the Extreme Tech Challenge at CES, which provides an excellent opportunity to present our technology to a group of key innovators and business leaders,” said Andrew Yakub, chief executive officer of Rayton Solar. “Our presence at CES is an important milestone for the company, as we continue to make progress developing our technology and demonstrating how to make solar less expensive and more efficient so that it can better impact the world.”

Rayton Solar’s technology utilizes a particle accelerator to manufacture solar materials that require significantly less semiconductor material. The company is on target to receive its accelerator in the first half of 2018, at which point it will begin developing a pilot production line.

“We believe our technology can unlock previously untapped applications for solar cells to make a greater impact in everyday life, such as extending the battery life of electric cars and cell phones, wirelessly powering electronic sensors and smart home devices, and other future applications that require a thin, flexible, high-efficiency cell,” Yakub said.

Rayton Solar – Our Secret Sauce To Dominating The Solar Industry (part 2 of 2)

How does Rayton anticipate manufacturing solar panels that are 25% more efficient???

Rayton Solar’s efficient utilization of silicon allows us to use one of the highest quality types of silicon – Float Zone Silicon – in our panels. The combined use of Float Zone Silicon and our patented processes gives Rayton Solar’s panels the potential to reach 24% efficiency. That is 25-40% higher than the majority of solar panels on the market! Competitors have not been able to take advantage of the efficiency boost from Float Zone Silicon because their solar cells are too thick – making the use of Float Zone Silicon too expensive. Rayton Solar can economically utilize Float Zone Silicon because we aim to use only a 3 micron thick slice of silicon per solar wafer (versus the 400 micron thick standard slice). Float Zone Silicon and our patented processes give Rayton Solar a potentially huge efficiency advantage!

Why does efficiency matter? A 25-40% more efficient cell means you need 25-40% less solar panels to produce the same amount of electricity! That not only means you benefit from a significant cost savings on solar panels, but also a significant savings in land needed to place the solar panels, installation, racking system, and inverters!

Solar cell efficiency and manufacturing costs are the two main factors that control the solar industry. With our patented technology, Rayton Solar has the prospect of being the industry leader in manufacturing cost and cell efficiency.

Rayton Solar – Our Secret Sauce To Dominating The Solar Industry (part 1 of 2)

(Photo of the type of Particle Accelerator Rayton Solar will be utilizing)

How does Rayton anticipate manufacturing solar panels at a cost 60% less than industry standard??? 

There are several pathways for how Rayton plans on achieving the 60% cost reduction. The primary being a significant decrease in the use of silicon, a solar panel’s most expensive component. With the amount of silicon used by a standard solar panel manufacturer to produce 1 solar panel, Rayton Solar aims to produce 100 panels!

How? The traditional silicon cutting process uses a saw to cut silicon wafers 200 microns thick and has 50% waste – thus needing a 400 micron slice of silicon per wafer. These wafers are cut to 200 microns because the mechanical friction from the saw can crack the wafer when slicing any thinner.

At Rayton Solar we created a patented process to significantly reduce the amount of silicon needed per solar panel. Our process utilizes a particle accelerator that can potentially cut silicon wafers at 3 microns with zero waste! We could be using a 3 micron slice of silicon per wafer versus the industry norm of 400 microns.
 We are entering the age where solar panels will become a mainstay of the world’s energy supply. An opportunity to back a disruptive solar technology represents a path to enabling change to a renewable future and an investment with very bright economic prospects.

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
