Rayton Solar has bridged the gap between particle accelerator technology and solar energy production to create a revolutionary silicon cutting technique. This technique is projected to reduce solar panel manufacturing costs by upwards of 60% compared to industry standards, while making them 25% more efficient, and resulting in a very cost-effective source of energy.




Rayton Solar is a California-based solar panel company that aims to develop the world’s most cost-effective source of energy. By bringing together essential particle accelerator technology and solar energy manufacturing, Rayton has created silicon cutting and handling techniques that can be leveraged to transform the way electricity is generated around the world.




The key to Rayton's cost savings lies in their ability to increase silicon yield with their patent-pending silicon cutting process. Rayton Solar is capable of making up to 100 times as many solar panels with the same amount of silicon as its competitors use to make just one panel.


Rayton’s technique has also unlocked the commercial viability of ultra pure electronic grade silicon – Float Zone Silicon – for use in a solar panel. Silicon is the most expensive component of a solar panel and Float Zone Silicon (FZ) is 10 times as expensive as the market standard Czochralski Process Silicon (CZ). By reducing wafer thickness to 3 microns and eliminating waste - Rayton is able to utilize FZ economically. No other solar manufacturer in history has been able to economically use FZ, which provides Rayton with the potential to produce up to 24% efficient solar panels.

Rayton believes this efficiency increase means that buyers would require 25% less solar panels than they do today. The savings are seen down the entire solar system vertical - including installation, racking, land, and maintenance costs.



The standard industry manufacturing process wastes half the raw silicon block due to the saw blade that is used to cut silicon. Rayton Solar's manufacturing technology is a zero waste process that represents a revolutionary new step for the solar industry.







The global energy market is projected to grow to over $10.4 trillion by the year 2020.


Furthermore, the International Energy Agency (IEA) expects renewable energy to be "the largest single source of electricity growth over the next five years."

By 2040, renewables will command 60% of new capacity and 2/3 of power investment globally. As global population surpasses 7.5 billion people, additions to the global sustainable energy portfolio will top 700 GW or 26% of the world's power capacity.

As international economies make a more conscious effort to shape the way we generate energy, the stage is set for renewables to become the primary method of powering the world. Rayton Solar aims to command the sector.



As federal energy requirements mandate an increase in the production of renewable energy (solar, wind, tidal, and others), California has set their renewable portfolio standards to 1/3 of its energy portfolio by 2020.

Rayton Solar is uniquely positioned to be an industry leader as these trends continue across the country and around the world, creating the perfect legislative environment for its growth.

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

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


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.

Andrew Yakub

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

8 months ago
(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.
