Suniva Expansion Could Add 50 Norcross Jobs
Suniva has received $5.7 million in Recovery Act Advanced Manufacturing Tax Credits to expand its solar cell manufacturing facility in Norcross. The company expects to increase production capacity by 75 percent and create more than 50 manufacturing jobs in 2010.
The high-efficiency solar manufacturer began producing monocrystalline solar cells at its Norcross facility in 2008 and now operates two solar cell production lines with an annual capacity of 100 MW.
"In little more than a year, we've created over 130 green jobs," said Suniva CEO John Baumstark. "These tax credits enable us to continue expanding and supplying the rapidly growing American solar market with products developed in American laboratories and made by American workers."
