SEG Solar said it plans to set up a PV module manufacturing plant in Houston with an anticipated annual capacity of more than 2 GW.
The facility is expected to start construction at the end of 2022 and be fully operational by mid-2023.
Plans call for the plant to run three production lines capable of producing high efficiency N type Topcon solar modules with 182mm or 210mm solar cells.
The company said its decision was prompted in part by solar manufacturing incentives included in the Inflation Reduction Act. It said the proposed Texas plant would give it more control over its supply chain and simplify transportation logistics. SEG said it expects that the modules will qualify for federal local content incentives and also avoid or reduce its exposure to tariffs facing manufacturers outside of the United States.
The company currently has a module fab operation in Vietnam with an annual capacity of 750 MW.
Founded in 2016, Seraphim Energy Group (SEG) said it has supplied modules for more than 1.2 GW of capacity in the U.S. It provides PV modules for the utility, commercial and residential markets.
