Soitec opens solar manufacturing facility in California

Soitec opened its North American solar manufacturing facility in San Diego, Calif. on Dec. 20.

The first module was produced in October, and the first 140 MWp phase of the production line is now operational. The factory has been designed to reach 280 MWp in capacity at full production.
