Suntech PV panels which also let light through sun shades
China’s solar panel maker Suntech Power Holdings Co., Ltd. said Monday it will set up its first U.S. factory in the Greater Phoenix, Arizona area…
The plant will have an initial production capacity of 30 megawatts and is expected to begin production in the third quarter of 2010.
Steven Chan, Suntech’s Chief Strategy Officer, said in Beijing the company will make an initial investment of 10 million U.S. dollars…
The U.S. plant, which will be about 80,000 to 100,000 square feet, will employ over 75 full-time employees at launch and may double its staff within the year as the North American market develops.
They’ll be hiring administrative staff who speak English, Chinese and Spanish. They wish.
Silly remarks aside, what this addresses is the cost of transporting finished products to market becoming a qualitative portion of the whole equation.
