Kyocera Solar's North American manufacturing facilities have surpassed the production milestone of two million photovoltaic (PV) solar modules.

The company's solar modules are used in residential, commercial, and utility-scale projects.

Kyocera produced its first PV modules more than 30 years ago in Japan and expanded its production to Tijuana, Mexico in 2004. The company increased its production again with its first U.S. production of solar modules in San Diego in 2010. In addition to the operations in San Diego and Tijuana, Kyocera currently has solar module manufacturing facilities in Japan, China and the Czech Republic.

"It took more than five years for Kyocera to reach the one million module mark at our North American operations and only two years to double it," said Steve Hill, president, Kyocera Solar Inc. "We're seeing many regions increasingly embrace high-quality solar energy solutions, and ongoing innovations from Kyocera will continue to improve efficiencies."

Kyocera has been developing such power solutions for some 37 years, setting repeated world records in multicrystalline silicon cell efficiency and recently produced cells with the highest conversion efficiency level in the world at 17.8%.
