Baja Sun Energy SRL says it will construct a concentrated PV (CPV) solar system manufacturing plant and use the panels produced by the plant for a 10 MW solar generation facility at the Silicon Border CleanTECH Park in Mexicali, Mexico.
The company has entered into an agreement with Arima Solar under which Arima will be a stakeholder and supplier of CPV technology, gallium-arsenide semiconductors and other materials to Baja Sun.
Initial plans include investments of more than $500 million over the next four years. The factory will be built out to over 100 MW annually, with over 4,240 direct employees, according to the companies. The fab will manufacture cells, modules and dual-axis tracking systems.
Baja Sun also plans to establish sales and marketing operations in San Diego.
