Daqo and JNE to build Canadian PV module factory

A capacity of 25 megawatts is expected to be reached through phase one of the project.

According to the companies, commercial production will begin in the fourth quarter of this year, while CAD$5 million will be invested in the first phase of the project in an 85 to 15 split by Daqo and JNE respectively.

It is unclear how many phases the factory is likely to go through before it is complete, or what the final capacity and investment will be.

Daqo New Energy Holdings (Canada) Ltd is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Daqo New Energy, while JNE Solar Inc. is an affiliate of JNE Consulting.
