THORNTON, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:ASTI), a developer of flexible CIGS solar panels integrated with consumer and off-grid products, announced today the publication of an interview conducted by StockUpNews with the Company’s President & CEO, Victor Lee.

In an interview with Victor Lee, President and CEO of Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. (ASTI), www.StockUpNews.com reveals why Walmart.com, Fry’s Electronics and the Denver Broncos have partnered with Ascent’s EnerPlex™ brand to capture the market of thin film, user-friendly, flexible solar panels for the everyday functional needs of re-charging portable electronics. Lee announces Ascent’s retail kiosks could triple by mid-2014. “We are the Rolls Royce of solar panels with our unique form-factor and attributes,” says Lee. “Our value price model integrates our technology into consumer products allowing us to shift away from a price per watt model to a price per unit.” Speaking directly from the company boardroom, Lee demonstrates impressive product flexibility compared to the inflexibility of a traditional crystalline solar cell.

Mr. Lee said, “We are pleased to use this forum to provide investors additional insight into our growing EnerPlex brand and evolving business strategy via our interview with StockUpNews. Ascent Solar has initiated a paradigm shift by directly entering the consumer market with our EnerPlex brand, drastically changing the dynamics of our intrinsic value proposition; especially when compared to companies which remain exclusively in the business of manufacturing commercial solar.”

Ascent’s EnerPlex series is quickly changing the way consumers view solar; with the SurfrTM line of solar and battery integrated phone cases, as well as the KickrTM line of portable solar chargers, EnerPlex products enable consumers to hold the power of solar in their hands. The addition of the JumprTM line-up of portable batteries for re-charging portable electronics now enables consumers to have a complete, integrated, charging solution for life on the go.
