NSP noted that the facility had been designed under energy saving concept and has won LEED-NC (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – New Construction) from the U.S. Green Building Council.

NSP has consolidated its high-efficiency manufacturing operations in Hsinchu Science Park and Tainan Technology Industrial Park as part of plans to migrate all production to monocrystalline PERC (Passivated Emitter Rear Cell) technology and a pilot line for IBC cell development. 

DelSolar was merged with NSP in 2013, during a period of overcapacity and consolidation of PV manufacturers.

PV Tech has been running an annual PV CellTech Conference since 2016. PV CellTech USA, on 8-9 October 2024 is our second PV CellTech conference dedicated to the U.S. manufacturing sector. The event in 2023 was a sell out success and 2024 will once again gather the key stakeholders from PV manufacturing, equipment/materials, policy-making and strategy, capital equipment investment and all interested downstream channels and third-party entities. The goal is simple: to map out PV manufacturing in the U.S. out to 2030 and beyond.
