In the 2023 update of Solar Power World’s Global Inverter Manufacturing Locations, a few companies have shifted production out of China, but many are continuing manufacturing operations there.
SPW has been gathering global inverter manufacturing information for the past few years as tariff battles increased the cost of some overseas inverter manufacturing. Now, U.S. manufacturing comes with the added benefit of new tax credits included in the Inflation Reduction Act.
However, since the Treasury Dept. has not yet released further guidance on how U.S. manufacturers can qualify for new tax credits for making specific solar products, companies have remained hesitant to commit to new stateside factories. Asia remains the dominant location for manufacturing facilities.
