Graduate Education Week from November 10 to November 14

Celebrating graduate student contributions in teaching, research and service.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Picasolar Inc., a solar start-up company affiliated with the University of Arkansas, recently raised $1.2 million in equity investments.

The investment funds came on top of funding through a prestigious SunShot Award by the U.S. Department of Energy.

“These investments are crucial toward helping Picasolar grow as a company,” said Douglas Hutchings, Picasolar’s chief executive officer. “Some of these investors had never invested in an Arkansas company. Our patent-pending technology could save an average-sized solar panel manufacturer $120 million annually, making the panels, and solar energy, more affordable for consumers.” Full article
