GAF Energy, a shingled solar module manufacturer, has announced plans to move production out of Asia to a new facility in California, as it continues to develop technology to integrate solar panels with roof shingles.

It currently produces building-integrated solar products in South Korea. However, it plans to move production later this year to a newly renovated, 112,000-square-foot factory in San Jose, California.

The facility will employ about 400 people in manufacturing, engineering, and research and development. It will be able to produce about 50 MW of solar panels per year.

GAF Energy reportedly expects to benefit from reduced risks associated with offshore production, including tariffs on Asian-made solar goods and rising transportation costs.

The company launched in 2019 and is a unit of Standard Industries, a privately held global industrial group. It has installed its products on more than 2,000 U.S. rooftops.
