Chi Mei Group is reportedly considering to set up a manufacturing base for solar cells in Changhua, as confirmed by the county government and Bes Engineering.

According to county officials and Bes, representatives from Chi Mei visited the Changhua coastal industrial park and have made inquiries about possibly establishing a solar cell production facility but not a facility for TFT LCDs.

However, Chi Mei has not revealed any of its plans regarding entering the solar cell business. In the middle of the year, industry reports revealed that Chi Mei Optoelectronics Corp. (CMO), a member of the Chi Mei Group, has been scouting for information about investing in solar cell production via CMO's subsidiary Chi Lin Technology.

Further, a few of the panel industry's bigwigs in the island, such as AU Optronics Corp. (AUO), were also reportedly seeking to enter the solar cell business. However, AUO has denied any reports of going into the business.
