Lawrence, MA – October 19, 2011 – Solectria Renewables, LLC, the leading U.S. PV inverter manufacturer, announced today that it will expand its manufacturing operations into India and China as both countries announce significant growth opportunities for commercial and utility scale photovoltaic projects.
Solectria Renewables will be opening a 300 MW manufacturing plant in China and a 200 MW manufacturing plant in India.
