Hand in hand with its recent workforce expansion, Suniva has increased its manufacturing capacity at its Atlanta based plant. Previously the capacity was at 96MW, which has gone up to 170MW by adding a third cell line. The new solar cell manufacturing line is in production. Suniva’s cell production remains sold out through the rest of this year.
“Demand for our high-efficiency, low-cost solar cells and modules continues to increase rapidly, which is a testament to the quality of Suniva’s products,” said John Baumstark, chairman and chief executive officer of Suniva. “We are pleased to have the ability to quickly expand our capacity, maintain a low-cost structure, hire additional employees and help the U.S. lead the new clean-energy economy.”
