Aide Solar celebrates grand opening of China facility


Aide Solar, a subsidiary of the Panjit Group, publicized the grand opening of its Xuzhou, China, solar cell/module production facility. At over 1 million square feet, the new facility is reported to be able to increase the company’s poly- and monocrystalline silicon PV module capacity by 40%–a grand total of 350MW per year. The new plant has 12 solar cell production lines and brings the Aide Solar employee count to 1,184 people worldwide.

“We see the U.S. as presenting an explosive long-term growth opportunity for solar power,” said Raymond C. Wiley, director of North America sales for Aide Solar and member of the Arizona Department of Commerce’s Green Economy Advisory Committee. “Solar-generated power is the only alternative energy technology that can be deployed and scaled to meet demand requirements in the shortest amount of time. The additional module production capacity from our new facility in China will allow us to respond to the high-volume, rapid growth requirements that Aide Solar is seeing in the U.S. and around the world.”
