Suniva Inc., a manufacturer of solar cells and modules, has announced the completion of its manufacturing expansion at its U.S. headquarters, located in Norcross, Ga. The latest expansion increases the company’s Georgia-based manufacturing capacity to 450 MW.
Suniva recently celebrated the completion of its expansion with a ribbon-cutting ceremony that included keynote speakers U.S. Assistant Secretary of Commerce Steve Haro and U.S. Rep. Rob Woodall, R-Ga.
“Here at home we don’t just talk about partnership, innovation, and economic growth – we bring them to life with real, tangible success stories like Suniva,” said Woodall. “Stemming from the innovative minds at Georgia Tech and going on to become America’s leading manufacturer of high-efficiency, affordable solar cells, Suniva, is a company that not only reflects our values as a community, but is, in fact, a result of our community. With the tripling in size of their Norcross facility, I couldn’t be prouder of what they’ve accomplished to this point, and look forward to a continued partnership.”
“Our latest expansion demonstrates that American manufacturing continues to be a meaningful force in the global solar manufacturing industry,” said Matt Card, executive vice president of commercial operations of Suniva. “The increase in solar cell efficiency we have achieved, along with our new capacity, brings even more of our high-power products to an even wider customer base. The marketplace continues to benefit from a strong American manufacturer.”
