Florida, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Advanced Solar Photonics confirmed that it is in the process of gearing up to start production at its monocrystalline solar module production factory.
The factory is projected to reach a capacity of 500 megawatts (MW) on an annual basis in the next two and half years. With the installation of the first line nearly complete, ASP said that it is now seeking and signing distributors. One of the first to sign on was SunWorks Solar.
ASP announced that it would build the facility in April of this year. The company had said at the time that its first monocrystalline panels would be available in July 2009. Full thin film production is scheduled to ramp up by late 2010. The company expects the facility to employ 500 people once at full capacity.
