Stion said that the first phase of the solar panel production facility includes a 100MW line planned for Hattiesburg, Mississippi, with an initial investment of $500m.

Stion plans to manufacture the solar panels in an approximately 300,000sq ft of the Hattiesburg facility.

Stion is producing high-efficiency, thin-film solar panels using monolithically integrated circuits.

Mississippi governor Haley Barbour said that the announcement that Stion is locating a thin-film solar panel manufacturing facility in Hattiesburg is further proof that Mississippi is an ideal location for clean energy companies to locate and expand.

In June 2010, Stion closed a $70m Series D financing to help scale production, which included a partnership with Taiwan Semiconductor.

Our batteries have Xtreme thick plates with (XC Diamond Plate Technology) added to them. They have been designed for hours of heavy discharge each day, followed by a fast recharge during the daylight hours. Very few batteries can take the grueling deep discharge-recharge cycle every day for long periods of time. U.S. Battery has proven time and time again that our solar battery line can stand up to this type of battery torture day in and day out for years to come. When you demand reliable energy storage count on U.S. Battery every time!
