Suntech Power Holdings today announced it has delivered more than 1 gigawatt (GW) of solar panels to customers throughout North and South America.
The company passed this milestone in July 2012.
Suntech America was founded in 2007 in San Francisco, California, and has grown since. In 2010, Suntech opened a 30MW solar module production facility in Goodyear, Arizona, which has since expanded to 50MW and now runs around-the-clock. Suntech employs about 180 people throughout the Americas and is continuing to hire and grow to meet new market demands.
Globally, roughly 7GW of Suntech solar panels have been shipped to more than 1,000 customers in more than 80 countries. Altogether, deployed Suntech solar panels generate an estimated 9 terawatt hours of clean electricity per year.
