For my capstone class we are doing a live case on the Solar Industry. With a CEO of a Top Solar company in Japan coming in as a guest speaker soon, we were asked to get our basic understanding of the Industry.

Since google does not have all the information in one place, I decided to gather up data up in my blog.

Below is the list of the companies that lead in solar module production.
