Profiles in American Solar Manufacturing
American solar manufacturing is a diverse economic powerhouse that employs 38,000 workers.
There are more than 600 facilities in the United States that manufacture for the solar industry. The products these companies make include steel and polysilicon, inverters and trackers, cabling and combiner boxes, and cells and panels. They also fabricate racking and mounting systems and they are innovating every step of the way.
If the International Trade Commission approves Suniva’s remedy, much of the manufacturers profiled here will be severely injured and the number of jobs potentially lost will be many times those temporarily gained by the petitioners.
The companies mentioned here are owned by Americans and overseas investors, but they all have one thing in common, they have found a way to compete in the marketplace, through innovation, efficiency and good business decisions.
