Our Operations

What We’re Producing

Illuminate USA’s new manufacturing facility will assemble solar panels ready for installation. The facility will produce bifacial solar panels for the domestic residential and utility-scale markets using some of the most advanced and efficient panel assembly technology in the world.

Our Commitment

A Hometown Commitment

Illuminate USA’s new operations in Ohio reflect a long-term commitment to the Greater Columbus and Pataskala communities. The Pataskala facility will increase and expand the technology and renewable energy ecosystem in Ohio, while also creating more than 1000 advanced manufacturing careers for Ohioans.

Illuminate USA is partnering with local economic development organizations JobsOhio and One Columbus to develop training and skills development programs and to support recruiting efforts.

We are committed to being a member of the community through partnerships with local organizations, schools and businesses.
