Maxeon’s solar module capacity reaches 2.5 GW in Mexico



Maxeon Solar Technologies says it has invested $70 million to upgrade its panel factory in Mexical, Mexico, to 1.8 GW. The rest of the capacity comes from the 700 MW plant that the Singaporean manufacturer uses in Ensenada.

Maxeon also has another plant in Ensenada, in the same Baja California state. Its two module factories in Mexico have a combined capacity of 2.5 GW and employ approximately 2,000 people.

The company said in a statement that it has made cumulative investments in the region of more than $260 million. It claimed its Mexicali site is now one of the “largest solar panel manufacturing facilities” in America.

“With its large workforce, excellent geographic location and favorable business environment, Baja California plays and will play an increasingly important role in meeting the growing demand for our products in North America and the rest of the world in the years to come,” said Maxeon CEO Bill Mulligan.
