CHONGQING, China, Oct. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Daqo New Energy Corp. (NYSE: DQ) ("Daqo New Energy", the "Company" or "we"), a leading manufacturer of high-purity polysilicon for the global solar PV industry, today announced that the board of directors has officially approved the Company's Phase 3B expansion plan ("Phase 3B Project") for its polysilicon facilities in Xinjiang.

Phase 3B Project is expected to increase the Company's polysilicon annual nameplate capacity from the current 18,000 MT to 25,000 MT. By adopting additional technology improvement and debottlenecking projects, the Company may be able to further increase its capacity to 30,000 MT per annum by the end of 2019.

The Company expects to complete project design and initial preparation works for Phase 3B Project by the end of 2017, complete constructions and installations by the end of 2018, start pilot production in the first half of 2019 and reach full capacity by the end of the second quarter of 2019.

For the Phase 3B Project, the Company plans to adopt new designs, processes, technologies and equipment that would further improve the quality and purity of its polysilicon products. The polysilicon products of the Phase 3B Project are anticipated to reach electronics grade and will be targeting the mono-crystalline wafer and semiconductor markets, which have more stringent requirements on polysilicon quality and purity, and therefore have higher entry barriers. The Company may potentially enjoy higher profit margin if it could successfully access these markets with its differentiated ultra-high purity electronic-grade polysilicon products.

In addition to polysilicon quality upgrading, the Company expects to implement new production processes to improve operational efficiencies, which would further reduce our total production cost.  Once Phase 3B Project is ramped up to full production capacity, we anticipate the overall total production cost for our Xinjiang facilities could potentially be decreased to US$7.50 per kilogram, benefiting from better operating leverage, adopting new production processes and equipment with higher efficiencies, and achieving greater economies of scale.

NEW YORK, Oct. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CleanChoice Energy, a renewable energy company providing 100% clean electricity to customers across the country, announced it has opened a Manhattan office to develop new solar software and clean technological innovations. The new office, located in New York City's "Silicon Alley" and based out of Grand Central Tech's Hub, will focus on the deliverables of a $2.5 million cooperative award from the U.S. Department of Energy's SunShot Initiative. This is CleanChoice Energy's—one of the country's fastest growing companies—second major expansion of 2017 and the company now has staff in Washington D.C., New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Massachusetts.

"Technology is the key to bringing clean energy to 100% of Americans. For example, community solar could reach nearly 60 percent of prospective utility customers across America, regardless of whether or not they have a roof suitable to install solar panels," said Tom Matzzie, Founder and CEO of CleanChoice Energy. "Our goal is to bring clean energy to the millions of Americans who are unable to access it today—and our New York office will play a major part in reaching that goal."

The CleanChoice "Energy Labs" team will be based in the New York City office. CleanChoice has found success driving down customer acquisition costs and making it easy for energy customers to go green. The Energy Labs team is focused on building on that success and bringing community solar to scale by digitizing the customer journey and creating simple, cost-effective customer engagement. CleanChoice Energy Labs will build infrastructure that will expand customer access through software modules, tools, and platforms built on the latest technology and extendable across CleanChoice's renewable products. The new office is part of CleanChoice Energy's push to create expanded renewable energy choice for more Americans.

The Urban Tech Hub @ Grand Central Tech is home to 40 companies working on the future of smarter cities in coordination with specific corporate partners and the full range of New York City government agencies.

Consumers want renewable electricity, but they want it convenient and fast. As one of the first licensed retail energy providers offering only 100 percent renewable energy products to American homes and businesses, CleanChoice Energy has made it as easy as possible for people to choose clean energy as-a-service instead of as a home construction project. The company has served more than 1 billion kilowatts of clean energy to customers in nine states since 2013. Recently, CleanChoice was named as a Best for the World company for their social and environmental performance.

About CleanChoice Energy 

CleanChoice Energy is a renewable energy company empowering utility customers across the country to cut emissions and support clean energy through 100 percent retail renewable electricity choices and community solar.

PITTSBURGH, Oct. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hyliion, the instant Class 8 vehicle hybridizing company announced today the 6X4HE System for long haul trucks.  Easily installed on new or retrofitted on existing trucks, the Hyliion System uses hybrid electrification to deliver fuel savings, lower emissions, instant telematics and a better driver experience. Mesilla Valley Transportation, PAM Transport and Ryder all participated in testing and refining the 6X4HE.

Hyliion 6X4HE On The Road

This is the second product announcement from Hyliion.  The first which occurred a year ago was a trailer based product.  "After our trailer product announcement last year, fleets came to us and asked to have the technology put on trucks.  We listened and focused our efforts to first deliver the 6X4HE System with an innovative APU," stated Thomas Healy, Hyliion CEO.  "The technology we designed into the trailer product plus a different approach to an APU is now available for Class 8 trucks."

The 6X4HE easily attached to the truck frame and is a self-contained system. Fuel savings of up to 30% are a blend of three technologies:  15% from electric hybrid, 12% from APU, and 3% from aerodynamics. "Innovation in fuel savings is nothing new to Mesilla Valley Trucking, but Hyliion's system is the only thing we've seen that can make such a big impact," said Royal Jones, CEO Mesilla Valley Transportation.

Regenerative braking captures power when slowing down then electric power is applied when necessary to keep diesel engines at their most efficient RPM delivering hybrid fuel savings. The APU leverages Hyliion's proprietary cooling system and battery to deliver 18,000 BTUs for 10 hours on a single charge.  In addition, 2 outlets provide electricity in the cab.  The 6X4HE is also Shore Power enabled. 

"Electrification is the talk of the industry," stated Scott Perry, Chief Technology and Procurement Officer for Ryder Fleet Management Solutions. "Hyliion provides a creative solution for long-haul over the road trucking that we feel will be of interest to current diesel fleets who are looking for an advanced technology that they can pursue in the very near future.  We're excited to be working with their team on this revolutionary product as this relationship expands upon Ryder's ability to provide customers with the most innovative solutions to help them streamline operations, promote safety and reach their efficiency goals."

Delivering cost savings for fleets, lower emissions for the environment and a better overall driving experience is the focus for Hyliion. "We are excited to be a part of the testing process with Hyliion on a product that has the potential to be industry changing.  The Hyliion team is great to work with," stated Paul Pettit, VP Maintenance PAM Transport.

Hyliion is currently taking orders for the 6X4HE with production starting November 2017.

About Hyliion

Pittsburgh-based Hyliion founded in 2015 offers fleets an easy and efficient way to decrease fuel expenses and lower emissions by creating intelligent electric hybrid Class 8 vehicles. Hyliion's patented technology can be used on new or existing vehicles.  Requiring no driver training, Hyliion products provide a positive return to fleets and the environment instantly.
