GEís new advanced solar manufacturing facility will be larger than any existing solar panel factory in the country today when complete in 2014. Solar panels produced in the new factory also will be more efficient, lighter weight and larger than conventional thin film panels.
Higher efficiency is a key component of GEís goal to offer advanced solar products while reducing the total cost of electricity for utilities and consumers. Lighter panels will facilitate easier installation and enable important applications including commercial rooftop. Larger sized panels lower total system cost by reducing the amount of racking and electrical components required.
