California — Bloom Energy announced the opening of, what it calls, a multi-gigawatt manufacturing plant in Fremont, California.

The 164,000-square-foot facility represents a $200 million investment and follows the recent expansion of the company’s global headquarters in San Jose.

Bloom’s expanded footprint, now more than 524,000 square feet, is expected to create more than 400 clean energy jobs by year-end, bringing Bloom’s California headcount to nearly 2,000.

California Governor Gavin Newsom, State Senator Nancy Skinner, State Senator Bob Wieckowski, Fremont Mayor Lily Mei, and Alameda County Supervisor David Haubert toured the new plant.

“Founded over twenty years ago, we are a global pioneer in clean energy technology,” said KR Sridhar, founder, chairman, and CEO, of Bloom Energy. “Our roots are here, and our home is here. We are proud to continue innovating in Silicon Valley, fully supporting California as a beacon for the rest of the world in its energy transition. It is important to ensure both energy resiliency and reliability today are accessible while charting a sustainable path to decarbonization. We need to make the right decisions now that support the lifeblood of our digital economy.”
