Last November, the Italian major introduced strategies to construct a manufacturing center with a yearly capacity of at the very least 3 GW, which might possibly reach up to 6 GW.

Oklahoma has been determined as the top prospect to suit the production capacity, Giovanni Bertolino, the head of Enel's United States solar production arm 3Sun U.S.A. has claimed.

According to the report, a site is being taken into consideration within the Tulsa Port of Inola yet the search for potential locations is still continuous.
