For archiving / Media Release Sandia Labs / Nov 2004

One of the main issues raised has to do with the current price of the SES unit, currently estimated at 150 000 dollars, that will be brought to under 50 000 dollars once mass production is achieved. If we succeed into mass producing them in Morocco, the men hours being considerably lower, we can be looking at a target price of 25 000 dollars per unit, that is the price I used for the calculations, or maybe it is 35 000 dollars, I'll have to check on that.

In any case, considering that we halve the unit production cost by 50% if we produce them locally is a fair estimate. Another key issue would have to do with automating the production process, semi automation is I think the way to go with several production plants located around the country, it will be raised in a future post.
