Currently S4A has production capacities for 2023 on an array of modules including 330W/60 cells and 410W/72cells, 410W/108 half cut cells all black panels for the residential market, and 410W/72 cells (silver) and 550W & 580W solar panels for C&I and utility markets.

The PV ModuleTech conference gathers developers, independent power producers and module suppliers to the U.S. solar market as well as EPCs, banks, investors, technical advisory and testing & certification specialists. With the U.S. solar industry facing numerous supply challenges during a period of increased demand for solar, module supplier selection has become increasingly difficult. This event will address the module landscape that is expected to unfold for U.S. buyers in the coming years; in particular new domestic manufacturing. Special attention will be given to the module offerings, full value-chain traceability and the financial health of the companies currently supplying the market. Additionally, modules are changing in size and technology, with n-type wafers becoming more prevalent. The PV ModuleTech event in Napa, California in June 2023 will help attendees to navigate this new landscape for U.S. buyers in the coming years.
