SPI Energy Co., Ltd., a global renewable energy company and provider of solar, storage and electric vehicle solutions for business, residential, government, logistics and utility customers, announced that its Solar4America subsidiary began construction of a new state-of-the-art 500MW n-type TOPCon solar cell manufacturing facility in the United States.

In a news release, SPI said its new facility would support the production of Pioneer4 430W Black modules for residential markets and Pioneer5 580W Bifacial Modules for commercial, industrial and utility markets through Solar4America.

The project follows Solar4America’s initial announcement of the Pioneer4 430W TOPCon All-Black module during last February’s Intersolar North America trade show at the Long Beach Convention Center. With an industry-leading efficiency of up to 22.3%, the Pioneer series solar modules are set to revolutionize the solar market.

“We are thrilled to announce the development of our new 500MW n-type TOPCon solar cell manufacturing facility,” said Denton Peng, Chairman and CEO of SPI Energy. “This facility will support the production of Solar4America’s Made-in-USA groundbreaking Pioneer series solar modules while also providing our customers with the highest quality solar products on the market.” 

The American-made Pioneer series solar cells and modules are expected to be available for delivery to customers starting in Q1 2024.
