Lt. California Gov. Gavin Newsom and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Western Administrator Jared Blumenfeld presided over the dedication of Solaria Corp.'s solar power manufacturing plant and solar arrays at the company's global headquarters in Fremont, Calif., last week.
Officials highlighted the importance of public-private partnerships that have made California a worldwide leader in solar technology and are bringing manufacturing jobs back to California.
Solaria designs, manufactures and markets silicon PV modules and systems to solar system integrators, project developers and electric utilities. The company has expanded its global capacity to 50 MW and says it plans significant expansion next year.
