– “Solar panel production comes to Thurston County”
“For the last six years, he [Entrepreneur Rich Phillips] has been noodling on an idea that finally became PureSolar, a solar panel manufacturer that is underway in 10,000 square feet of space in Tumwater at the New Market Industrial Campus. It also has an executive team, eight employees, a board of directors and a customer advisory board made up of a group of solar panel installers — the same folks PureSolar works with directly as customers, Phillips said.
‘It fees like a milestone,’ said Phillips, 46, about the business reaching this point. He added, though: “It’s exciting, but I’m not content.”
The company’s flagship product is a 52-pound solar panel with 60 solar cells. It has glass on both sides and produces around 300 watts of power or what is known as kilowatt hours for the downstream residential or commercial customer,” by Rolf Boone, The Olympian.
