Renewable energy company SunEdison (NYSE:SUNE) will be manufacturing solar modules for its US photovoltaic (PV) projects at Flextronics’ (NASDAQ:FLEX) facility in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.
Flextronics has initiated the full volume manufacturing at the site in the first quarter of 2015, it said in a press release on Tuesday.
SunEdison will use the made-in-Mexico solar modules primarily for US residential, utility and commercial PV projects. The company has picked the Ciudad Juarez factory because of its location on the border with the US, providing access to all major US rail lines and highways, according to the statement.
Commenting on the news, Flextronics’ senior vice president Scott Graybeal said that the contract will increase the company’s manufacturing capacity to more than 1.7 GW.
The two firms have been working together since May 2011.
