San Francisco, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Suntech Power Holdings Co. Ltd. plans to establish solar energy products manufacturing in the U.S. The company is currently exploring opportunities in several states that could be optimal, cost-effective locations for a production and distribution center.
“We plan to make a decision within the next six months as to the location of our U.S. facility based on a variety of criteria, including local manufacturing incentives and long-term policy commitments that create vibrant local markets for our products,” said Dr. Zhengrong Shi, Suntech’s chairman and CEO.
By locating manufacturing facilities close to its customers, Suntech said that it can drastically reduce logistics issues and costs, thereby reducing carbon emissions due to the transport of modules and increasing just-in-time delivery capabilities.
States or localities with strong economic development initiatives are encouraged to contact Suntech to provide the company with more details and arrange for further discussions.
