Solar energy systems provider Kyocera Corp. of Kyoto, Japan, has finished construction of its solar cell manufacturing plant in Yasu City, Shiga Prefecture. The facility will be the core production site for the company’s newly enhanced photovoltaic cell with a conversion efficiency of 16.9 percent. The plant will further the company’s production target of 1 GW annually by March 2013, a production volume that is two and a half times the current 400-MW capacity.
