Panasonic Energy Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. is set to start work on the new facility, located in Kulim Hi-Tech Park, Kedah, this December. It has said it will manufacture both its HIT (Heterojunction with Intrinsic Thin-layer) modules, and work on integrated production of photovoltaic wafers, cells and modules. In a statement released, it explained, "Panasonic will sell its solar modules as an individual product as well as part of a system combined with storage batteries."
With an investment of 45 billion yen (around USD$579.5 million; 437.7 million), the company says production is slated to start in December 2012. The facility will be spread across an area of around 70,000 square meters and will house roughly 1,500 employees.
