Swiss module manufacturer, Meyer Burger plans to locate a production facility in the U.S. within the next year.

Bloomberg reports that the company is in negotiations with several U.S. states to determine a final location for its proposed facility.

The new facilty is expected to employ roughly 350 people when it’s fully operational and have an initial annual capacity of 400 megawatts.

Meyer Burger develops and produces systems with which solar cells can be manufactured and electrically connected for use in solar modules.

“The world’s first photovoltaic production facility was established in California in the 1970s — well ahead of Europe and Asia,” Meyer Burger Chief Executive Officer Gunter Erfurt said. “Now it’s time to return to the industry’s roots and help end dependency on offshore imports.”
