Silfab opens second solar panel assembly facility in Washington State

Silfab Solar has announced the opening of its third solar panel assembly facility in North America. The new 400-MW capacity factory in Burlington, Washington, is just 24 miles south of its sister factory in Bellingham, Washington. Silfab is headquartered and has its original factory outside Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

The new Burlington facility will initially produce Silfab’s newest Prime 370-W series of modules. The addition of this plant brings Silfab’s U.S. solar silicon panel manufacturing capacity to 800 MW.

“Silfab has a long and successful history of optimizing North American manufacturing excellence and producing high-quality, extremely durable and very efficient PV modules – exclusively designed and manufactured for the North American homeowner,” said CEO Paolo Maccario. “Silfab’s hallmarks – advanced engineering, superior quality and high-touch customer service – will remain at the forefront of our ongoing expansion.”

Silfab Solar formed in 2010 out of a collaboration of various vertically integrated solar PV product companies. In 2018, the company bought Itek Energy to establish its U.S. manufacturing hub in Bellingham.

Silfab produces high-efficiency solar panels for use in the residential and commercial markets. The company uses an electrically conductive backsheet to move all contacts to the backside of the module.

“Northwest Washington provides Silfab with a highly trained and motivated labor force, a location that incentivizes innovation, and ideal transportation and shipping routes that complement our just-in-time manufacturing model,” Maccario said.
