THORNTON - Ascent Solar Technologies Inc. (Nasdaq: ASTI) today announced it has been selected to provide BIPV solar modules in a pilot application at Foxconn's new factory in Zhenzhou City, China.

Foxconn is the world's largest maker of electronic devices, including iPad, iPhone, Kindle, Playstation and Xbox.

Ascent's modules' flexibility and lightweight form factor allows the modules to be seamlessly integrated into the building's structure in ways that traditional glass-block, photo-voltaic technology cannot, the company said.

Integration of the modules will allow the factory to utilize cost-effective, high-performance solar power with Ascent's CIGS technology to deliver the highest power density available on thin-film plastic substrates.

"We are honored to be selected by Foxconn to provide our lightweight, durable, flexible thin-film solar modules in this new factory," said Victor Lee, Ascent's president and CEO.

"We plan to demonstrate the value of our technology and we hope to build a long-term relationship with Foxconn."
