Kyocera Solar Announces Plans to Manufacture Solar Modules in California

Kyocera Solar announced that it will be producing solar modules at its Balboa Avenue facility in San Diego, California, which will help the company to meet the increasing demand for renewable energy in the U.S. The solar module manufacturing in the U.S. will also support Kyocera’s announced production target of 1 GW of solar cells per annum by March 2013.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, California Governor, said the announcement demonstrates the state’s green policies are critical for the economic success of the state. He further said green jobs in the state have increased even during this economic downtrend and the announcement from Kyocera to manufacture solar modules in San Diego will help to create more green jobs.

To start with, the new solar module manufacturing at its Balboa Avenue facility will produce 30 MW of solar modules per annum. The company’s advanced manufacturing abilities in the U.S. will be utilized to manufacture the most efficient and powerful solar modules. The manufacturing facility was chosen to serve specifically to meet the growing demand for large-scale solar power producing systems in the U.S.

Steve Hill, president of Kyocera Solar, said there is substantial growth in the U.S. for solar power. The plant in San Diego will supply highly-efficient, high-quality solar modules to cater to this fast growing market. The company is committed to supply renewable energy through solar modules for 35 years and is adding production capacity throughout the world to meet the global demand, Hill added.
