UPDATE – The references to the company name Hague, ticker – HGUE were changed in April 2010 to Quantum Materials Corp, ticker – QTMM
Whether you’re in college starting to invest or an old time investor, Solterra should be in your portfolio as they develop into a market leader for the Solar and Nanotechnology Industry! The reason I say that is from an article written by Jennifer Ouellette in Artificial atoms illuminate biotechnology and other fields. Her closing paragraph is: “Exactly where quantum dots will find their biggest commercial breakthrough remains to be seen, but the initial biotech applications will surely pave the way for others. And for those engaged in their sale and manufacture, there is no denying their market potential. “I think we are on the verge of a commercial breakthrough similar to what polymers did to the plastics industry,” says Talbot. “This material has so many different uses that it could be a fundamental new material system for a whole host of products that touch on almost all major areas of modern life.” Solterra is economically producing these Quantum Dots and making them available for research in various industries. http://en.wordpress.com/tag/quantum-dots-for-sale/
I’ve been researching this company for several months now and it is still not on the radar screen while they execute their business plan and build infrastructure. HGUE is a good risk to rewards ratio investment that you have to at least consider as an investor. At .10 cents it’s pretty much a no brainer that a little money goes a long way to securing a potentially very nice return! The first half of the year they kept a low profile for some reason without announcing they had made significant progress. That changed when they broke the silence with press releases that started on 6-4-09, 6-10-09, 6-16-09, etc. Before that there was only an ASU press release about Solterra and Nitto Denko that Solterra never mentions. You can now see from the press releases this company has the right products and management to blossom into one of those companies that raises the phrase, “If only I knew”. Well consider yourself advised and do your DD. This emerging market leader (HGUE – Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc.) is a company with unique value propositions to set it apart. It is in the forefront of the new Flexible Solar Power Industry that will replace the silicon wafer-based solar cell industry. Now that they’ve announced they are spinning off Solterra from HAGUE and are persuing involvement with the European Supergrid Initiative it should be even more interesting! See 6-10-09 and 6-16-09 press releases.
Since June, Hague has continued to move forward. They announced additional ventures on July 27, 2009 covering screen-printing techniques for the fabrication of organic light emitting diodes. August they announced they are going to use the Access2flow production process to allow commercial manufacturing of Quantum Dots. September 17th they presented their business plan to Venture Capitalists at the 7th Annual Rice Alliance Energy & Clean Technology Venture Forum at Rice University. November 9th & 10th they are presenting in Saudi Arabia at the Kingdom Project Expansion & Investment Summit.
Solterra is embarking on its journey into the fast path of technology leadership as a market leader in Solar and Quantum Dot production. CEO Stephen Squires has taken two of the top research scientists in their fields and combined their innovative scientific contributions to create the next generation of solar cells for the industry. DR Jabbour at ASU is working on the light weight thin film panel sheets that will make unrealistic pipe dreams economically possible using the Quantum Dots Dr. Wong developed at Rice University. Solar as we know it today isn’t going to be leading any charge in the future, the future is in the economical mass production of Tetrapod Quantum Dots like Solterra is developing. This nanotechnology will lead the 2010 and on revolution in the Solar applications. Solar power production 24/7 (yes at night) is the future. Silicon cells haven’t produced energy in the infrared and ultraviolet range which these extended spectrum Quantum Dots do. Is the future bright for Solar? For the investors and companies engaged in the next generation of products for solar it is very bright I believe.
Solterra is the only public traded company with this innovative technology that private investors can BUY at a reasonable price. First Solar is out of touch price wise and Solyndra, Heliovolt, Nanosolar, and Kanarka are private companies only institutions can invest in. They all have state of the art equipment with less of a quality Quantum Dot and have received massive institutional funding. The people in the know, know there is money to be made in the Solar Industry, not to mention the potential market for organic light emitting diode displays alone is estimated to exceed $4.5 billion, according to Global Industry Analysts, Inc..
I first checked Solterra out when I was in Phoenix for my daughters wedding on 2-14-09 to confirm the reality and feasibility of this company. I work too hard for my money to throw it away. I don’t work for, nor am I affiliated with Solterra. I bought shares of their stock only and would like to introduce others to their potential. My enthusiasm and comments don’t necessarily represent management’s views, I think their views would be a little more biased. Again, do your own DD to confirm mine. The costs to install solar systems is what Solterra is helping reduce to the tune of 90% less for the solar cells. This innovative and much more profitable Quantum Dot technology is replacing the silicon wafer-based solar cell industry. Solterra has extraordinary potential given the product addresses medical industry needs as well and is not limited to just the solar arena. Quantum Dots are also used in the Semiconductor Quantum Dot (SQD) industry, Optoelectronics, Military and Aerospace research fields but that is not Solterra’s focus right now. Solterra is concentrating on the Solar field that is in the process of being spun off from the HAGUE Corp. The Hague Corp will be the Quantum Dot manufacturer, maybe one of these others will be an off shoot division in the future too. That off shoot consideration happened July 27. 2009 as stated in the press release. The Quantum Dots stability and reproducibility at a significant cost reduction with the high quality Tetrapods developed by Dr. Wong is their foundation. The beauty of this is the application of the Quantum Dot to produce the flexible solar sheet is by a modified ink jet printer! Solterra’s QD ink for jetting machinery and the flexible sheet are two of the innovative developments for the next generation of low cost efficient power and the beginning of the Flexible Solar Power Industry. Now in addition, the Organic LED / OLED based displays have the potential to be manufactured by HGUE using very high volume, low cost roll-to-roll print processing on inexpensive substrates.
Billions will be allocated and made during the transition from oil to alternative energy sources and Solterra will be one of the significant contributors as a market leader. The Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) recently published an article stating that from the expected growth for electric power (even with the economical down turn) they project by 2030 the nuclear utility industry will have to increase by 25% to meet demand and that an additional 6.7% will be from renewable energies. I work in the nuclear industry and can tell you the last plant built to come online was in 1990. NOT one nuclear plant has been built in the US since for commercial power production. Our company went from leading, to a wait and see for new next generation nuclear construction. 25% has to come from somewhere! More good news for Solterra is the North Carolina Senate passed Bill 3 (SB-3 as will many other states) requiring by 2018 that utilities have 10% of their energy generated from renewable energies such as Solar, wind, geothermal, etc.. Thus the requirement to either purchase more costly power from other suppliers or build generating units. The Bad News – YOU HAVE TO PAY for it whether you like it or not, even though they could sell you lower cost fossil fuel generated electricity. Jones-Onslow EMC in North Carolina has in their letter “Purchasing renewable energy is approximately 2 to 3 times more expensive than traditional generation and developing and implementing energy efficient programs will require additional capital investments.” The Good News is Solterra Renewable Technologies is making Solar power affordable with their highly advanced Nanocrystal Quantum Dots technology in their Thin Film Photovoltaic Solar Cell flexible sheets. Also, in light of the recent political changes SOLAR has become the main stream choice since the Nuclear path has been set back with the loss of Federal funding for Yucca Mountain as a depository for waste fuel. Wind power is not economical on a cost basis and startup costs are more than fossil fuel generators. Besides from noise and eye pollution the blades are an environmental hazard to the birds when the wind is blowing. Hydrogen fuel cells and ocean waves – that stuff is a long way off before it can be widely used, and most of the companies developing the technologies are small and hard to invest in. Solterra’s continued execution of their vision and plan will benefit the environment and those that invest. This stock is a global play that will pay!!!
