Silfab Solar Eyes US Manufacturing Opportunities
June 11, 2018By
The company, which is a unit of Italy’s Silfab S.r.l., made the statement as part of an announcement that it has secured a supply agreement with California-based home improvement contractor PetersenDean’s roofing and solar division. Details on the location or potential capacity of the facility were not provided.
Three other solar manufacturers have announced they will open U.S. manufacturing facilities following President Donald Trump’s decision in January to impose solar tariffs. JinkoSolar in March said it plans to build a 400-MW solar module manufacturing plant in Jacksonville, Florida. First Solar in April said it will build a 1.2-GW solar module manufacturing plant near its existing Perrysburg, Ohio, plant. And, at the end of May, Hanwha Q CELLS Korea Corp. said it will begin building a solar module manufacturing facility in Georgia this year, with construction scheduled to be complete in 2019.
