Meyer Burger plans to build 400-MW capacity solar module assembly factory in U.S.

Kelly Pickerel of Solar Power World writes that European solar technology company Meyer Burger is planning to build a 400-MW capacity solar module assembly factory in the U.S.

The C3 Take
  • Meyer Burger specializes in heterojunction technology, which combines crystalline silicon and amorphous silicon thin-film.
  • Once completed, this will be the second solar module factory in the United States to manufacture solar panels with heterojunction technology.
  • Markets, not mandates, are the best path forward to a cleaner energy future.

“The 400-MW U.S. plant is just a starting point, with the company stating it expects to grow into multiple gigawatts of capacity of solar modules for residential, commercial and utility-scale applications. The first iteration of the U.S. plant should be operational by the end of 2022 and employ hundreds of manufacturing workers.”
