Siliken Renewable Energy Announces Expansion
Siliken Renewable Energy, a company specializing in engineering, procurement, construction of turnkey solutions and development of commercial and utility scale photovoltaic (PV) systems, announced that its manufacturing facility in Otay Mesa, California has more than doubled capacity and production capabilities of American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) compliant PV modules. As the demand for solar power intensifies, Siliken has increased production resulting in annualized local capacity of 30MW which contributes to a global capacity of approximately 300MW. The amplified sales volume has led the company to expand operations by doubling their local workforce from 60 to over 130 employees.
Siliken states that the ramp-up in production is a direct result of it establishing strong market position in both existing and newly developing PV markets across the U.S., including California, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Colorado, New Jersey and Minnesota, and in Canada and Mexico.
