Kyocera Solar Inc. has officially inaugurated its solar product assembly operations at the existing Kyocera Mexicana, S.A. de C.V. maquiladora plant in the Tijuana Industrial Park, located in Buena Vista Otay, Mexico.

The Kyocera facility manufactures solar photovoltaic (PV) modules -- rectangular, roof-mountable panels that convert sunlight into a clean, silent source of renewable electricity. The new Tijuana assembly line is part of a global expansion Kyocera announced in September 2004 that will double its PV module manufacturing capacity, to 240 megawatts per year, during 2005.

Production of PV modules commenced at the Tijuana plant in November, targeting the California market for commercial and residential solar PV systems. Next year, the facility is expected to reach an annual production capacity of 36MW of PV modules -- enough to provide a 3.5kW PV system for more than 10,000 homes each year.

"People all over the world are demanding an energy source that's affordable, reliable and safe for the environment," said Steve Hill, president of Kyocera Solar, Inc. "These attributes are exactly what Kyocera's PV technology delivers."
