Sharp produces its two millionth solar panel


Since coming online in 2003, the company says its facility's production capacity has increased tremendously, and its manufacturing staff has tripled. The solar manufacturing facility assembles a variety of panels for residential and commercial installations.

"Sharp is very proud to reach a milestone of this magnitude. Having the two millionth panel roll off of the production lines is a testament to the growing demand for solar electricity, and our steadfast dedication to growing the solar electricity market," said Mr. Kozo Takahashi, CEO and chairman, Sharp Electronics Corporation. "This is a tremendous achievement for Sharp and the entire clean tech sector."

The company says its Memphis facility has produced enough solar modules to fully power more than 65,000 total average-sized homes, with clean, renewable solar energy. This saves, it explains, nearly 12 million metric tons of carbon dioxide per year.
