Today we announced our participation as a founding member of the Coalition for Solar Manufacturing (CASM). Our reasoning for waiting until this point for announcing is simple: our focus is solar manufacturing, not trade litigation. However, we have decided that it is vitally important to take a public position now so that we can speak freely with our customers, our suppliers, elected officials and the general public so that they can better understand the importance of this case to both Helios and the US solar manufacturing industry as a whole. Please visit the CASM website to learn more about the case and why it is so important not only to US solar manufacturing but to the US solar industry as well.

The Summit is a great event with loads of fantastic topics, notch speakers and great exhibitors!
Well, we've had a big week here at Helios...
We started the week settling into a full production schedule for our newest module - the 410 watt 9T6! This 2 MW order is headed to a military base in California and we couldn't be more proud - American made solar for the American military - now that is national security.
This afternoon we got a visit from Wisconsin Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin and her staff. It was great to meet her and share views on energy, manufacturing and international trade.
And winter seems to be coming, finally. Have a great weekend everyone.
