They were also very excited about the fact that they are currently in discussions with the state of New York to build the initial manufacturing plants, which is a continuation of the relationship that was initially developed by the Silevo team. And the initial fund of the target capacity greater than 1 gigawatt within the next 2 years. So with that built, it'll be one of the single large solar panel production plant in the world and should create thousands of jobs in the area. The company also planning to create a Silicon Valley research facility and pilot plant.
