NanoPV Plans Americus, Georgia, Manufacturing & Distribution Complex

Solar technologies company NanoPV plans to invest more than $36 million in opening a manufacturing and distribution facility in Americus, Georgia. The project is expected to create more than 500 jobs in Sumter County.

NanoPV will operate in an existing 56,000-square-foot facility, located at 301 Martin Marietta Drive. The company will bring hundreds of opportunities to Sumter County and the surrounding region, including careers in solar manufacturing, quality control, operations and maintenance, research and development, and marketing.

“NanoPV is one of the pioneering, most advanced solar technology companies in the world to manufacture energy-efficient, third generation solar panels cost effectively,” said Dr. Anna Selvan John, President and CEO of NanoPV. “We are very proud to execute our largest solar manufacturing entity at Americus, Sumter County, Georgia. We thank the State of Georgia, Governor Kemp, the Sumter County community, Quick Start, and the economic development authority. Currently, the project pipeline of NanoPV, with the capacity of more than 2.5GW solar system projects nationally and internationally, ensures further expansion of our manufacturing capacity rapidly.”

NanoPV is a pioneering U.S solar technology company with nearly 20 years of experience in solar cell technologies, panel manufacturing, and system integration. The company manufactures highly advanced solar panels and provides manufacturing equipment, end-to-end turnkey solutions, and technologies to its solar energy clients.

“We are witnessing a rebirth of the solar manufacturing industry in the United States, and Georgia has a great story to tell. Because of our pro-business environment and world-class workforce training solutions, Georgia has emerged as a leader in the solar and renewable energy space, and it is exciting to bring these jobs of the future to Sumter County,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “We are proud to add NanoPV to the incredible ecosystem of manufacturing and technology companies that call Georgia home. Many thanks to our partners in the region and to the Americus-Sumter Payroll Development Authority for supporting this project.”

Senior Project Manager Candice Scott represented the Georgia Department of Economic Development’s (GDEcD) Global Commerce division on this competitive project in partnership with the Americus-Sumter County Payroll Development Authority, South Georgia Technical College, and Georgia Quick Start.

“I’ve always been a firm believer in renewable energy and in the relationship I have built with NanoPV Solar through almost six years,” said Executive Director of the Americus-Sumter Payroll Development Authority Rusty Warner. “I am excited to be a part of this project, especially when we all are heading into a ‘renewable world.’ NanoPV Solar is what other ancillary solar companies are looking to be around. A big thank you to my board, South Georgia Technical College, and to the southern hospitality of the Sumter leaders and people.”
