Korean Solar Company Plans to Build $2.5 Billion Plant in Georgia

Hanwha Qcells expects to make solar panels and their components in the United States to take advantage of President Biden’s climate policies.

The climate and tax bill President Biden signed in August to increase the use of green energy and electric cars while expanding domestic manufacturing appears to be yielding some results.

A Korean solar company, Hanwha Qcells, announced on Wednesday that it would spend $2.5 billion to build a large manufacturing complex in Georgia. The plant will produce critical components for solar panels and build complete panels. If realized, the company’s plans could bring some of the supply chain for solar energy, which is largely based in China, to the United States.

Qcells, which has its headquarters in Seoul, said it was making the investment to take advantage of tax credits and other benefits in the Inflation Reduction Act, the law Mr. Biden signed last summer. The manufacturing complex is expected to create 2,500 jobs in Cartersville, Ga., roughly 50 miles northwest of Atlanta, and at an existing plant in Dalton, Ga. Production at the new plant is expected to start in 2024.

The company opened its first solar panel manufacturing plant in Georgia in 2019, quickly becoming one of the largest U.S. producers — by the end of last year, it was cranking out 12,000 panels a day. The company said its new complex would increase its capacity to 60,000 panels a day...

Several other solar companies have announced new U.S. manufacturing plants in recent months, including CubicPV, a start-up backed by Bill Gates that plans to begin production of solar panel components in 2025.

Another company, First Solar, said in August that it would build its fourth panel manufacturing plant in the United States. First Solar plans to invest $1.2 billion to expand its operations and add 1,000 jobs

    Well there you go.

    Actually, the Biden administration has been wildly successful for the American people in its first two years, especially given the 50/50 Senate, a world-wide gas increases, and the residuals of the Covid pandemic.

    They just never talk about any of his accomplishments on Truth Social, FOX, or any of Steve Bannons podcasts, so these guys here will have never heard about any of them.

    "wildly successful"


  3. by Ponderer on January 12, 2023 7:12 am

    Compared to what was expected of him given all the handicaps he's operated under, certainly it has been.

    It hasn't been a perfect two years by any means. The whole border crisis he inherited is still an abysmal mess. It's pretty much my main criticism of him.

    But even though prices of a lot of things are still pretty high, gas prices are down to less than what they were a year or so ago. Employment is at a low not seen since the sixties. He's gotten a lot of his agenda passed that will directly help seniors and families. Again, even with a 50/50 Senate.

    As I said, I don't expect this to be anything but a total surprise to you, given the ridiculously far right news media you avail yourself of.

    Just heard that inflation has been going down for the last six months straight. I guess I'm forced to thank Trump for that.

    But what the heck is going on with eggs???

    HA! As I'm typing this, I hear in the background that it was because of an outbreak of avian flu. I'm sure that's Biden's fault.

    What was the inflation rate on J6 023?

    J6 021.

    “ But what the heck is going on with eggs???” — Ponderer

    According to the news reports I saw, there was a recent in major outbreak of avian flu, which decimated the chicken population. I also suspect southern border immigration policies have led to a decline in available workers for the chicken and egg production facilities.


  8. by Ponderer on January 12, 2023 10:23 am

    Yeah, I caught that, Curt.

    I just don't like how they keep bringing the price of eggs up in discussions about inflation. Inflation has essentially nothing to do with the price of eggs right now. Some commentators need to get the memo.

    Just as I was typing about that earlier, Donna and I were talking about it and I said that a 60% increase doesn't sound like anything that this inflation would do, and that I bet there was some poultry disease we're not hearing about. Shor'n begor'n, we heard about the avian flu situation about two minutes later.


  9. by Ponderer on January 12, 2023 10:24 am

    And yeah, a lot of markets and industries are going to suffer from lack of workers as the border situation tightens up.


  10. by HatetheSwamp on January 12, 2023 10:52 am

    Tighten up? Don't you think the 5,500,000 plus already in the country should hold us for a few months?

    What I think is irrelevant. It's what the involved industries think given the circumstances they find themselves in that matters. As we've seen in the past, it doesn't take much of an organized crackdown on undocumented workers to cripple certain areas of agriculture. Suddenly crops were having to be left to rot in the fields because of no one to pick them.
