Mercury News interview: Eugenia Corrales, CEO of Nanosolar
Remember Nanosolar? The solar manufacturer, located in South San Jose's Edenvale clean-technology zone, is one of several solar startups using CIGS -- copper indium gallium selenide -- instead of silicon for its solar cells and panels.
It makes its solar cells in San Jose and assembles them into panels at its factory in Luckenwalde, Germany. It's raised millions of dollars from investors, including Benchmark Capital and Mohr Davidow Ventures, and recently raised an additional $20 million.
