Kyocera aims to hit 1 GW production capacity


The company outlined its target after revealing that its manufacturing facility in Tijuana, Mexico, has produced its one millionth solar module. More than 400 employees gathered for a celebration by signing the back of the module to commemorate the event.

Kyocera stated that solar energy is now one of its fastest-growing businesses globally, and said that the one GW capacity will allow it to supply 3.5-kilowatt solar-electric systems for about 285,000 homes each year.?

There are over 20 Kyocera facilities worldwide, which already incorporate their own on-site solar electric generating systems, including a 214-kilowatt Solar Grove parking lot in San Diego and a 100-kilowatt rooftop system in Tijuana.

Furthermore, in addition to the operations in San Diego and Tijuana, Kyocera currently has solar module manufacturing facilities in Japan, China and the Czech Republic.
