Systovi says it will begin selling the new panels in 2024. Baptiste Duclos, marketing project manager for the company, said it will switch to M10 cells from 2025.

Systovi opened a new assembly line in March near Nantes, France. It invested €1.5 million ($1.59 million) to double its production capacity from 40 MW to 80 MW. The company says it hopes the investments will help to shift the PV supply chain to France.
