We are the world's largest manufacturer of solar wafers in terms of capacity, according to Solarbuzz. We have established a large-scale wafer manufacturing facility with an annual manufacturing capacity of approximately 3.0GW as of December 31st,2010. Our leading position has enabled us to form strong strategic relationships with our customers, including some key cell and module players in the industry. Such strategic relationships have helped us gain feedback to improve our manufacturing process and our technology and enter into new long-term contracts. Leveraging our scale and market position, we are able to procure advanced production equipment on favorable terms.

A thin slice of crystalline silicon is used as the key component in a solar wafer. We have developed processing technologies to reduce our production costs at each step of the production process, which include recycling more polysilicon, producing bigger ingots, increasing wafer size, reducing wafer thickness, recovering slurry and increasing production yield.
