Skyline systems delivers ten times more energy per gram of silicon than traditional flat panel systems in sunny locations. Built primarily out of commodity materials with manufacturing processes available on a vast scale, our approach dramatically improves financial payback and scalability, thereby accelerating the solar industry’s path to grid parity.

Skyline was founded in 2007 and is led by veterans of the solar energy and high volume manufacturing industries. The company is funded by NEA, other VCs and strategic investors.

We have received funding from the US Department of Energy (DOE) to accelerate production. We have also been awarded a contract from the US Department of Defense (DOD) to demonstrate our systems at military bases in the US Southwest.

Skyline went from prototype to our first grid connected customer installation in less than one year and has been shipping production systems since early 2010.

Skyline Solar is a NEA portfolio company.
