Breakthrough Energy Ventures, First Solar, and Hunt Energy Enterprises are the three top shareholders in CubicPV.
CubicPV reportedly plans establish a 2GW solar wafer and cell manufacturing unit with an investment of around $300-350 million under the Indian central government's production-linked incentive scheme.
While CubicPV will establish and control the wafer and cell manufacturing, the yet to be determined local partner would handle module assembly from the cells and marketing in India. CubicPV will utilise 1366's trademark Direct Wafer process to produce wafers directly from molten silicon instead of ingots.

Since the first Solar Jobs Census was published, American solar jobs have increased 167 pct from just over 93,000 jobs in 2010 to 249,983 jobs in 2019. This job growth reflects the rapid expansion of the U.S. solar industry, driven by the plummeting cost of solar technologies and its increased popularity among individuals, businesses, and electric utilities.
In the five-year period between 2014 and 2019, solar employment increased 44 pct -- five times faster than job growth in the overall U.S. economy. Solar jobs also increased in 31 states in 2019, led by Florida, followed by Georgia, Utah, New York, Texas, Illinois, and Virginia.
Most of the solar job gains in 2019 were in installation and project development, which added about 7,000 jobs in 2019. Overall, this industry sector employs 162,126 solar workers, about 16,000 of these workers focus on battery storage. The solar manufacturing sector grew by just under 700 jobs to a total of 34,423.
