Solar manufacturing plant opens in Phoenix

Another renewable energy boost for Arizona with a major plant opening in Phoenix today.

The news release by Power-One, the world’s second-largest manufacturer of solar power inverters for the renewable energy industry, announced that they opened "its first North American manufacturing facility in Phoenix that will eventually employ 350 people. Power-One’s Phoenix facility will produce its photovoltaic (PV) and wind inverters that convert renewable energy into a usable form of electricity for distribution on the utility grid.

The facility will reach a capacity of 1 gigawatt of product by the end of the year with available site capacity reaching 4 gigawatts, which would generate enough electricity to power up to two million homes. The inverters manufactured at this facility will be installed in residential, commercial and utility settings."
