In New Mexico 3 GW sun based processing plant will be open by Maxeon
Singapore-settled Maxeon Sun based Advancements has recently reported that it will construct a $1 billion silicon sun powered manufacturing plant in New Mexico – the biggest in the US.
The 3-gigawatt plant, which will be situated in Albuquerque, will deliver TOPCon PV-silicon cell innovation and Maxeon’s shingled-cell Execution Line sun powered modules. The new plant will supply both the utility-scale and roof sunlight based markets.

The Maxeon production line will be the principal huge scope sun powered PV cell and board production line in New Mexico, and its arranged limit is around twofold the size of the biggest silicon sun oriented plant at present working in the US.
The 160-section of land site in Albuquerque is locally of Plateau Del Sol. The complicated will incorporate sun powered cell producing, board gathering, a stockroom, and workplaces.
Maxeon gauges that the new manufacturing plant will make up to 1,800 positions. The organization intends to start development in the principal quarter of 2024, and the manufacturing plant is supposed to come online in 2025.
Bill Mulligan, Maxeon CEO, said, “The Inflation Reduction Act has catalyzed a new chapter in America’s energy transition. Our new solar cell and panel facility in New Mexico is an ambitious and concrete response to the need to decarbonize the US economy while creating permanent, highly skilled local manufacturing and engineering jobs.”
The New Mexico production line grows Maxeon’s worldwide assembling impression, which right now remembers plants for Mexico, Malaysia, and the Philippines.
