In 2023, Qcells, an industry-leading clean energy solutions provider, announced the successful completion of its Dalton, Georgia, factory expansion. Qcells added 2 gigawatts (GW) of solar capacity to Dalton, bringing the full factory’s output to more than 5.1 GW. The Qcells Dalton factory is the largest manufacturing plant of its kind in the Western Hemisphere and the first solar panel plant expansion since the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA).

The completed Dalton expansion created 510 additional solar factory jobs and will also assemble two new solar products: the Q.TRON G2 residential solar panel and a bifacial panel for the commercial and utility markets. Qcells’ Dalton factory will manufacture nearly 30,000 solar panels per day.

In 2024, between the Dalton and Cartersville facilities, Qcells anticipates its solar production capacity to reach 8.4 GW a year, enough to power 1.3 million homes annually with clean energy.

Qcells’ completed Dalton factory expansion and current development in Cartersville aim to accelerate the United States’ shift towards renewable energy. Upon completed construction, Qcells’ production in Georgia could avoid more than 12 million metric tons of CO2 equivalents per year while expanding domestic manufacturing of solar products amidst the push for Made-in-America clean energy solutions.
