Hoku Materials (HOKU) Secures Power for Polysilicon Production

Hoku Materials, a subsidiary of Hoku Scientific (HOKU) announced the signing of an electric service agreement with Idaho Power Co. for the purchase of electricity to power Hoku’s planned polysilicon production capacity of about 4000 metric tons/year.

“We are pleased to have finalized these agreements,” said Dustin Shindo, chairman and chief executive officer of Hoku Scientific. “The cost of electricity is the largest single component of polysilicon production costs for a Siemens-based process such as Hoku’s. The negotiated fixed rates are fair and fit well within our projected financial models for our operations.”
