SEG Solar (SEG) plans to build a PV module manufacturing plant in Houston with an anticipated annual capacity of more than 2 gigawatts (GW). The facility is expected to start construction at the end of 2022 and be fully operational by mid-2023. The plant is expected to create as many as 500 new jobs in the local Houston area.
The facility will be push out three separate product lines. SEG hopes it will provide more control over the supply chain and simplify transportation logistics, thereby providing customers with competitive pricing and even more assurance of on-time deliveries.
Even though it’s a Chinese-owned company, SEG anticipates that the modules manufactured at this facility will qualify for local content incentives and avoid or significantly reduce many of the tariffs and other restrictions facing manufacturers outside of the United States. The modules produced at this facility will be “Assembled in the U.S.” and may also be eligible for certain other certifications.
