Where can I buy Konarka products?
Konarka does not sell products directly to consumers or solar installers. Products will ultimately be sold through our application partners once they are commercially available. Future partners will be announced on our website. If you are looking to install solar on your residence or business, you can search for local solar installers at www.findsolar.com.

How do I partner with Konarka?
Konarka partners with a select number of established materials, manufacturing and product application partners with the expertise and capabilities to contribute to the successful commercialization of Konarka’s innovative technology. We do not currently partner with solar installers. If you believe your company qualifies, please fill out our on-line “contact us” form so that we can learn more about you. If there is a fit with Konarka’s needs, we will be in touch.

What are the technical specifications of Power Plastic™?
Specifications depend on the application. We keep this information confidential on behalf of our product application partners.

Will you send me a sample?
Konarka does not currently send samples of its proprietary technology. At this time, only a small, select group of partners have access to our technology.

How do I invest in Konarka?
Konarka is a privately held company, therefore, stock cannot be purchased. We are currently funded by leading venture capital firms. Konarka closed a $20M round of funding in February 2006.
