Photovoltaic Solar Cells Inc (Pink Sheets:PVSO) today announces that it has created a dye doped Graphite/Graphene only solar cell. This solar cell will be produced using the production tool that the company is building. This equipment can produce either a solar cell or a solar strip that can be used as a roofing tile. Pictures of these items can be viewed at the company’s web site.

This solar cell is inexpensive, environmentally friendly, reliable and durable. This solar cell can be walked on and it is flexible. The company is working on a way to regenerate the cell after years in service at the site where the cells are in use. This would be a first and would mean that the cells would last forever. Additionally, this would produce add-on revenues that are unheard of in the solar industry.

Over the past 12 years, management has worked with dye doped TiO2, CIGS materials, CdTe CdS materials, a-Si materials, Si materials and a Si Graphite/Graphene blend. It now has created the first dye doped Graphite/Graphene Solar Cell.

Management has applied for and has been awarded over 30 patents in various areas of Photovoltaics. Additional patents both in the US and worldwide are being prepared. For more information please visit the company’s web site at, email the company at
