Sunpower (SPWRA) is announcing this morning that Jabil Circuit (JBL) will begin helping the company ramp up solar panel manufacturing for key North American markets and will build the panels in Mexico within a few months.  It’s part of a long term strategy to improve customer service and reduce costs. 

Jabil will also work with Sunpower in  the Solar America Initiative (SAI), a US Dept of Energy program to accelerate the advancement of solar technologies.  The companies intend to evaluate establishing manufacturing locations in the US, bringing good jobs to the US.  This is news of manufacturing in Mexico is yet another indication of the failure of the stimulus package to create green collar jobs in the US right now!

"This agreement provides SunPower with the flexibility to site manufacturing near the largest and fastest growing solar markets in North America, improving the efficiency of our supply chain," said Marty Neese, SunPower’s chief operating officer. "Jabil’s extensive experience in manufacturing and high-quality standards makes them an ideal partner for producing SunPower’s solar panels, the most powerful solar technology on the planet."
