One of the Largest Solar Manufacturers in the US Increases Production Capacity

10 Mar 2017

Seraphim Solar, one of the largest solar manufacturers in the USA, has entered into their next phase of development - on target with initial projections. With 160MW of manufacturing capacity online as a component of its Phase 1 operation in Jackson, Mississippi, Seraphim USA is currently preparing for Phase 2 expansion to expand the facility with an additional 200MW. To supplement its leading 72-cell module offering, Seraphim also announced availability of its best-in-class, high-efficiency, 60-cell solar modules, designed for the residential distributed generation market. 

The company’s rapid growth rate significantly contributes to the local and national economy, and continues to provide more jobs for Americans. Seraphim USA is partnered with the City of Jackson to recruit employees and local companies. 

Seraphim Solar USA Manufacturing is producing “Made in the USA” solar modules to meet the strong residential and commercial demand for conversion to solar energy. As an extension of its Bloomberg Tier 1 global status; Seraphim is consistently recognized within the highest rankings of the most trusted and most stringent testing organizations in the industry, and is the first module manufacturer to pass TÜV SÜD’s ‘Thresher' test, which was co-developed by the US Department of Energy and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory to measure true long-term performance and safety. 

Based off 2016 numbers, the solar energy industry has a strong outlook for 2017. More than half of large infrastructure funds allocated money to Renewable Energy in Q1 of 2016. According to SEIA, the national trade association for solar, the U.S. installed 4,143 megawatts (MW) of solar PV in Q3 2016 to reach 35.8 gigawatts (GW) of total installed capacity- enough to power 6.5 million American homes. With more than 1 million residential solar installations nationwide and record-breaking growth in the utility-scale sector, the industry is poised to nearly double year-over-year. Renewable energy is the most efficient way to make the U.S. independent and self-sufficient, and our new President seems to agree. 

During the second Presidential debate in 2016, President Trump stated, “I'm all for alternative forms of energy, including wind, including solar, etc.” 

“With any new Presidential election, uncertainty arises on how it will affect the growth of the solar industry. But President Trump has shown tremendous support for US manufacturers and the jobs we create. We expect to see his positive disposition towards the solar industry to continue,” says Ryan Erwin, Executive Vice President.
