Suniva Celebrates Eight Years as America's Leading Solar Manufacturer

U.S.-based Manufacturing Company Expands Headquarters to 400MW

NORCROSS, Ga.--Suniva, Inc., a metro-Atlanta based manufacturer of high-efficiency crystalline silicon solar cells and modules, celebrated its eight year anniversary as Americas leading U.S.-born, U.S.-operated solar manufacturer on September 2nd. Last week Suniva announced the expansion of its manufacturing capacity at its Georgia headquarters to 400MW. This expansion came just one year after the opening of its second U.S.-based facility in Saginaw Township, Michigan.


Since Sunivas inception in 2007, the company has seen a steady increase in both technology advancements and manufacturing capacity. The expansion in Georgia will increase the production of its high-powered Optimus modules, with power ratings up to 290W (60-cell format) and 340W (72-cell format).

"Sunivas primary focus is to offer the highest quality solar products at maximum value, while achieving the highest power possible," said Matt Card, vice president, global sales and marketing of Suniva. "The maturing U.S. market continues to validate the value of our high-density solar modules. We are very pleased that we can continue to give back to the US solar marketplace and the domestic economy, through the continued creation of U.S. jobs. We are proud of our eight years of growth in Georgia and now, Michigan."

As a U.S.-born, U.S.-operated company, Suniva prides itself on its role of American job creation. Suniva employs the highest percentage of American workers among all other major solar module manufacturers. The new expansion will bring up to an additional 500 jobs to Georgia including management, administrative, supervisory and production positions.
