Solaria Corporation produces solar modules for the residential segment and has a national network of more than 1,200 installers.

Solaria CEO Tony Alvarez, who will be Complete Solaria president, said the merger “gives us critical mass”, enabling the combined business to provide a broader array of services while significantly expanding Complete Solar’s geographic footprint.

The companies, both of which are based in California, said they see significant tailwinds for US solar, driven by the recently passed Inflation Reduction Act.

Complete Solar provides residential and commercial customers with a digital platform for solar sales and installation, as well as the ability to monitor the energy consumption and performance of their units. Its CEO, Will Anderson, will serve as Complete Solaria’s CEO.

According to the companies, key benefits of the business combination include expanded geographic footprint and scale across 48 US states, enhanced supply chain certainty and improved ability to attract and retain talent.

Solaria Corporation secured US$40 million in funding in 2019, allowing it to double residential solar module production.

The company set up tracker manufacturer Nextracker, which was sold to Flextronics in 2015.

This special webinar will look at one of the most important changes impacting PV manufacturing today; how to establish and sustain new facilities around the world. For more than two decades, policy-makers have grappled with the challenges of nurturing domestic manufacturing sectors. Many countries have tried to create domestic sectors: Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, India, Europe and the U.S. But success stories have been rare. Mistakes seem to be repeated. And all the while, Chinese dominance of the industry has only increased. However, in the past 2-3 years, new drivers have emerged that suggest the dream of a global PV manufacturing ecosystem could be a reality. Join us as we shed light on this.

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.
