Kyocera Solar to begin production of solar modules in San Diego

Kyocera Solar to begin production of solar modules in San Diego

Author: Rich Hessler Solar

With goals of competing in the United States solar market, Kyocera Solar announced that they will open up solar module manufacturing in their San Diego facility.

This move will bring them much closer to a Kyocera Solar milestone of generating 1000 kilowatts or 1 gigawatt of solar capacity per year by 2013. Reaching this mark would allow Kyocera Solar to supply 3.5 kW solar electric systems to about 285,000 homes. With an initial production goal of 30 megawatts per year, solar module manufacturing will begin in Kyocera's existing Balboa Avenue facility.

Kyocera Solar will take advantage of their current manufacturing operations to offer the U.S. solar market the company's most powerful and most efficient solar modules. Two reasons why Kyocera Solar chose San Diego are because it is close to Kyocera Mexicana in Tijuana and because San Diego's solar market has the most potential in the most ambitious state when it comes to renewable energy standards. San Diego has a rising demand for large-scale photovoltaic systems and Kyocera Solar wants to focus on meeting that demand. Overall, California has deployed more solar energy systems than any other state.

"Today's announcement is further proof that California's nation-leading green policies play a vital role in our state's economic success. Even in this recession, green jobs in California have grown, and Kyocera's decision to locate its solar manufacturing operations in San Diego will create even more jobs at a time when they are needed most," said Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Though the Kyoto, Japan based Kyocera has been involved in clean energy technology through solar modules for the past 35 years, they are widely known for their success in telecommunications, copiers, printers, industrial ceramics and more. In the year ending March 31, 2009, Kyocera netted sales of $11.5 billion.
