Sanyo Starts Module Manufacturing in Mexico

Fresh on the heels of the opening of its new Oregon solar cell manufacturing facility, Sanyo Energy has officially opened and started production in Monterrey, Mexico. The plant, located in Nuevo Leon, Mexico, will be assembling Sanyo’s patented HIT (Heterjunction with Intrinsic Thin-layer) solar modules.

Sanyo Energy will be producing at a capacity of 50-megawatts annually, with the assembled panels to be used in installations in North America, including the United States.

“Our Monterrey plant was our first overseas module assembly facility in our solar business,” said Mitsuru Homma, executive vice president and member of the board of Sanyo Electric Co. Ltd. “The Monterrey plant is important and vital in North America for the assembly of our world’s highest efficiency HIT modules and the work done here has largely contributed to the growth in sales in North America, and will remain a factor as this region continues to grow.”
