Hoku Corporation is a solar products and services company operating two business units: Hoku Materials and Hoku Solar.

Polysilicon is an essential raw material, which is used in the production of solar cells for panels that convert sunlight to electricity for homes, businesses and farms.
Viking Idaho has recently completed the fire sprinkler installation in the reactor building (eight (8) pre-action systems) and the VGR Tower (three (3) deluge systems). This was a very difficult and challenging project due to the fast track schedule, height of the building and severe winter conditions.
