LG to Make High-Efficiency Solar Panels in the US

LG Electronics has announced plans for a 500 MW/year solar module manufacturing facility in Huntsville, Alabama. The facility will assemble the manufacturer’s 19.8% efficient NeON2 60-cell 340-W panels for residential applications. This now brings the total to over 4 GW of new module manufacturing announcements over the course of the last six months, in at least six new factories. The new manufacturing is expected to create about 160 new full-time jobs and the beginning of operations is scheduled for early 2019. PV Magazine
