Local solar glazing company receives up to $2m grant
Solar integrated glazing company, ClearVue Technologies today, is the latest recipient for a grant fund of up to $2 million with the signing of a Financial Assistance Agreement today.
Launched in March 2022, the Investment Attraction Fund aims to encourage new investment that will create local jobs, increase demand for local goods and services, and secure trade in new sectors and with new markets.
A trailblazer in the field of advanced solar glazing and window solutions, ClearVue, is a genuine WA success story. With their patented technology, this grant will enable them to manufacture key components used in their patented solar-integrated glazing units and windows at a new plant based in Perth.
The company plans to develop an assembly line to manufacture the solar photovoltaic strips used for solar collection in ClearVue’s solar windows and facades as well as manufacturing nanoparticles and quantum dots generating employment opportunities in this sector.
These components will be shipped throughout the country and internationally to the company’s licensed manufacturers for use in end-product solar façades and windows.
This grant to facilitate ClearVue’s plans to bring the fabrication of its product onshore is delivered by the Investment Attraction Fund, with the aim of supporting the State’s economic diversification priorities.
