Sanyo Commences Operation of HIT solar modules from its New Shiga Factory

Sanyo has completed construction of the Shiga Plant at its Shiga facilities in Japan (Ohtsu City, Shiga Prefecture) which was constructed for the assembly of HIT solar cell modules as part of continuing plans to expand and develop its solar business. The Shiga Plant will have an initial production capacity of 40 MW, and Sanyo will consider expanding the production capacity of the factory upon further review of market trends and demand.

With the new operation at the Shiga Plant which will be one of the major bases for module production, Sanyo will respond to domestic market demands, including increases in demand in the future.
