Wednesday, July 13th, 2011
Suniva, Inc., a U.S. manufacturer of high-efficiency monocrystalline silicon solar cells and modules, today announced it is expanding its photovoltaic module research and assembly capabilities at its Norcross, Georgia plant and headquarters. The expansion, scheduled to be completed in late August and operational in September, will enable Suniva to initially produce 25-30 MW of modules per year in Norcross. Suniva currently manufactures 170 megawatts of high-efficiency ARTisun SelectTM series photovoltaic cells per year at this facility.
“Suniva's high-efficiency modules already contain more than 80 percent U.S. content using our U.S. produced cells,” said Greg Mihalik, vice president of manufacturing and operations for Suniva. “Though Suniva already has one of the highest percentages of U.S. content in the industry, this expansion provides the ability for Suniva to offer even greater value for customers that require ‘Buy America’ compliant products.”
