TS Conductor Opens First U.S. Production Facility, Announces New Board and Advisory Members

TS Conductor Corp. (TS Conductor), a pioneer in high-performance transmission and distribution conductors for electricity grids, announced the official opening of its first U.S. manufacturing facility in Huntington Beach, California. The new ISO-certified facility can produce up to 5,000 miles of high-performance conductors per year.

In tandem, TS Conductor also announced the addition of four power sector veterans and innovators to its board of directors and advisory board. Charlie Bayless was named to its board of directors; Amory Lovins, Audrey Zibelman, and JD Hammerly joined its advisory board. The additions bring industry-leading expertise to TS Conductor when the company's high-performance conductors are more needed than ever for grid modernization and expansion.

TS Conductor's breakthrough wire technology transports up to three times the amount of electricity as compared to traditional power lines while cutting line losses in half. It is easily deployed with traditional work practice for both reconductoring projects as well as new build transmission and distribution infrastructure, offering a crucial solution for ensuring safe, reliable, resilient, affordable, and green electricity delivery.

In August 2022, TS Conductor and Starwood Energy Group — now Lotus Infrastructure Partners — unveiled a $100 million joint venture to finance deployment with grid operators in North America. Previously, in November 2021, TS Conductor unveiled its first round of funding; Breakthrough Energy Ventures, National Grid Partners, and a subsidiary of NextEra Energy joined the investment round, which totaled $25 million and was set aside for building the U.S. manufacturing plant.

For several years, TS Conductor's products have been manufactured under contract at a facility in China. The California facility, which is fully owned and operated by TS Conductor, represents an important investment in the U.S. domestic clean energy economy and manufacturing sector. The site currently employs 21 workers, and the company plans to hire approximately 40 new employees as the facility reaches full production capacity by the end of 2023.
