In the United States, Siemens will start producing solar inverters

August 21, 2023

Siemens announced, in conjunction with President Biden’s visit to Wisconsin, that it will begin manufacturing photovoltaic string inverters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, where the company will produce utility-scale solar components specifically designed for the US market. 

Siemens says it intends to build an 800 MW utility-scale inverter factory. The factory will concentrate on making string inverters. Siemens, a German company, has announced plans to increase manufacturing capacity in the United States. Beginning in 2024, a new factory will produce 800 MW of utility-scale string inverters annually. 

The Kenosha facility, which is owned and operated by the company’s long-time manufacturing partner Sanmina, is intended to help meet increased demand for localized production of critical parts for photovoltaic projects while also allowing customers to take full advantage of solar tax credits and domestic content incentives. The Kenosha facility will be the newest addition to Siemens’ expanding U.S. footprint, highlighting the company’s strong manufacturing presence in the company’s largest market. Siemens has invested $3 billion in U.S. manufacturing and other strategic M&A activities over the last four years.

“According to the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), the total number of installed U.S. solar fleets is expected to grow fivefold from 2022 to 2033, and with tax credits now available due to the Inflation Reduction Act, that demand will only get stronger,” said Brian Dula, Vice President of the Electrification and Automation business at Siemens Smart Infrastructure USA.
