Evergreen Solar Inc. and its contract manufacturing partner, Jiawei Solarchina Co., have broken ground on their new 100 MW manufacturing plant in Wuhan, China.
According to the companies, construction is on schedule to be completed by spring 2010. The plant is part of an agreement between Evergreen Solar and Jiawei through which Evergreen Solar will manufacture String Ribbon wafers at the leased facility that is being built on Jiawei's campus. Jiawei will convert the String Ribbon wafers into Evergreen Solar-branded panels on a contract manufacturing basis.
