Solaria has officially unveiled its new manufacturing plant and solar array at the company headquarters in Fremont, California. The opening ceremony was attended by Lieutenant Governor of California Gavin Newsom, EPA Regional Administrator Jared Blumenfeld and several other state dignitaries.
“California has been instrumental in implementing incentives that help foster the growth of solar and other green technologies,” Governor Newsom said. “Solaria is an exemplar of clean tech job growth in California – the kind of growth that can be furthered through effective public-private partnerships. Developing and attracting new manufacturing facilities and jobs to our state is my top priority as we work to reinvigorate job growth and retention.”
“Solaria solar panels incorporate innovative technology that delivers attractive project economics while leveraging crystalline silicon reliability, efficiency, and supply chain. The modules feature industry standard materials, and have been deployed and successfully financed in projects in the US, Asia, and Europe,” Solaria CEO Dan Shugar added.
Solaria latest development has increased its global capacity to 50MW, and plans are already afoot to build on this expansion next year.
