SACRAMENTO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / September 13, 2022 / SPI Energy Co., Ltd., (NASDAQ:SPI) (the “Company”), a global renewable energy company and provider of solar storage and electric vehicle (EV) solutions for business, residential, government, logistics and utility customers, signed a new lease for additional property and facilities at McClellan Park, CA located adjacent to the Company’s Solar4America (S4A) subsidiary’s current solar module manufacturing facility. The expansion will enable S4A to meet the strong demand for its American-made solar modules.
“Leasing property at the same location as our current operations provides tremendous scale advantages,” said Xiaofeng Denton Peng, Chairman and CEO of SPI Energy. “As demand for S4A solar modules continues to grow, we can leverage our experienced team in Sacramento to train new employees, and the economies of scale and enhanced logistics will enable us to quickly expand operations.”
The S4A module manufacturing facility in Sacramento is currently in production and began delivering S4A-brand modules to customers weekly during the third quarter. The latest expansion of operations is expected to increase our California module production capacity to 2.4GW in 2023, and coupled with new sites that we expect to procure on the east coast will further increase our module production capacity to 5.0GW by 2024. We are relatedly exploring the establishment of a 1.5GW wafer manufacturing facility in the United States.
The S4A team will be in Booth 4060, Hall D at the RE+ Solar conference in Anaheim, CA on September 19-22 and company executives will be present to discuss all of our exciting operations and growth opportunities.
