This from their web site: "Hoku Materials has signed seven polysilicon sales agreements with leading PV manufacturers in China, and expects to commence regular commercial production in calendar year 2012." If they are smart, Hoku will cut a deal with their Clients to get some of their raw product turned around into PV panels, which Hoku would put on their manufacturing plant's roof, parking structures and even an array on the ground to offset or eliminate their monthly $2M electric bill. That's somewhere around 1MWh to 1.2MWh a day. All Hoku would have to "barter" for is about 1500 to 2000, 200 watt solar PV panels.
