Invenergy and LONGi Solar in partnership to construct a 5GW/year solar manufacturing plant in Ohio.

LONGi Solar and Invenergy are coming together to construct a 5 GW per year solar panel manufacturing facility in Pataskala, Ohio, via a newly founded company, Illuminate USA.
A press release from Illuminate said the acquisition and construction of the facility will cost $220 million. Invenergy notes they made a $600 million investment in the facility.
Invenergy is noted as being the facility’s ‘anchor’ customer. LONGi is the world’s largest manufacturer of solar modules. Invenergy has an operating portfolio of 775 MW of solar facilities, and has 6 GW currently under development. Invenergy has developed approximately 10% of the United States’ wind and solar power fleet.

The world’s largest solar panel manufacturer is coming to Ohio

LONGi Solar is combining forces with solar developer Invernergy to build a 5 GW/year solar module manufacturing facility in Pataskala, Ohio.

Illuminate says that the construction of the facility will generate 150 jobs. Once it is running, it will require 850 individuals to keep it going. Both single and bifacial solar modules will be manufactured at the site.

                      Solar panel is safe,greener and economical alternative. Moreover, it can be replenished so it serves as a renewable source of energy.
