SunPower began producing its latest generation of solar cells in a pilot production line installed in the heart of Silicon Valley.

The new pilot manufacturing location will enhance SunPower’s ability to quickly and cost-effectively scale and supply panels to solar installations at homes, businesses, and schools throughout the growing U.S. solar market.

Over 100 people work at the new research facility that cost the company over $25 million. The site has over 30 parts suppliers and manufacturers, which have headquarters in 33 U.S. cities across nine states.

The research facility equipment includes several high-volume production-sized manufacturing tools and automation, and specialized testing equipment, sourced from Boulder, Colo., Hudsonville, Mich., and various parts of California, Massachusetts, Ohio, Texas, Illinois and elsewhere.
