Enel prepares US$ 1bn solar manufacturing facility for Oklahoma
- Inola facility is expected to reach 3GW of annual capacity in 2025
Enel North America, through its affiliate 3Sun U.S.A., has actually unveiled plans to develop an industrial-scale manufacturing facility in Inola, Oklahoma for the manufacturing of American-made photovoltaic (PV) modules.
The 2 million square foot factory represents a planned investment in excess of US$ 1bn, will produce over 1000 full time jobs, and also is anticipated to reach 3GW annual capacity in 2025 with the possibility to scale up to 6GW.
It's among the very first facility in the United States to generate high-performance bifacial PV modules and also cells, which catch more sunshine because the cells can respond to light on both front and also back surface areas, Enel stated.
To sustain energy workforce advancement, Enel is adding solar service technician training to its training centre in Oklahoma City, which opened up last year.
Enel currently has a big visibility in Oklahoma with greater than 2GW of renewable energy generating capacity, representing over US$ 3bn in total investments over the last decade.
