Leading Edge Equipment Technologies (LEET) is revolutionizing silicon solar wafer manufacturing. We are commercializing the first full-sized single crystal direct solar wafer manufacturing process with a dramatically lower-cost, high performance advantage over the 70-year-old incumbent technology. In the largest global wafer market of solar photovoltaics (solar PV), the LEET process enable an entirely US-based manufacturing supply chain for photovoltaic modules. After over a decade of technology development and over 100 patents, LEET is developing this technology for a commercial pilot in 2022 and gigawatt-scale wafer production in 2023 and beyond.
LEET was formed in 2017 as a technology spin-out from Applied Materials. Development has been financed by federal grants (>$4.7M) and private venture capital (DSM Venturing, Clean Energy Venture Fund, and Prime Impact Fund totaling over $10M). As a team of 18, we operate out of Wilmington, MA about 25 minutes north of metro Boston and Boston Logan Airport.
LEET is a fast-paced, agile environment. Team members wear many hats, and we expect them to take initiative and ownership from day one. Strong communication and disciplined organizational skills are critical in this collaborative environment, as well as a passion for commercializing next-gen, high impact renewable energy technologies.
