In Part 1 Shawn discusses the FourFold technology. He describes the difference between photovoltaic (PV) and hybrid solar technologies, and how they compare in costs and payback calculations. He continues by describing Focused Sun's hybrid solar technology module, its component parts, its manufacturing process and the assembly of module mirrors on site.

In Part 2 Shawn describes Starting a Solar Factory, the business proposition of setting up an independent factory to build FourFold modules. He shows who could start a factory, where they'd get funding to get started, how much it would cost, how to sell the modules and even the long-term possibilities of a factory.
