New Fab To Manufacture Solar Components in Arizona’s Mesa To Come Online in Q4/2023

Amphenol Industrial Operations (AIO), a technology company headquartered in Connecticut, is set to establish a new manufacturing facility in Arizona by the end of 2023, focusing on solar junction boxes and connectors. This move follows the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). The facility, spanning 58,000 sq. ft. in Mesa, will also produce advanced interconnect assemblies, equipped with state-of-the-art machinery and robotic technologies. AIO, listed as APH on the NYSE, serves as a key supplier to Heliene, contributing to the US solar PV modules. The new Arizona facility will bolster the domestic solar supply chain, complementing the region’s other significant solar manufacturing projects.

PV Installations Dropped Below GW Level for 1st Time in 6 Months, but Over 10 GW Added in 9M/2023

Germany’s solar PV installations in September 2023 slightly decreased by over 21% to 919 MW, while the cumulative installations for the initial nine months exceeded 10 GW, surpassing the annual target of 9 GW. The adjusted August installations rose to 1.17 GW. Although September additions fell below 1 GW, the country’s total installed solar PV capacity reached over 77.67 GW. Rooftop solar systems supported under the EEG decreased to 666 MW, and large-scale solar capacity stood at 113.5 MW. Despite being below the monthly target, continued installations could see Germany ending 2023 with over 13 GW annual installed capacity, an 80% growth from 2022’s 7.2 GW.
