Spanish solar company Isofoton looking for US headquarters

During a recent visit to the Clean and Alternative Energy Incubator at the University of Toledo, Ohio Governor Ted Strickland said he´d met with Spanish-based solar panel company Isofoton the day before, and they’re looking for a North-American headquarter location.Mr. Strickland spoke in Columbus with representatives from Isofoton, a 26-year-old company in Malaga, and one of  Europe’s largest producers of solar cells.

The governor said he told the company about the University of Toledo’s solar research and companies that have blossomed because of it, including Phoenix-based First Solar LLC, the world’s largest producer of thin-film solar panels. Most are made at the company’s plant in Perrysburg Township.  


One technology being developed by a company at the UT incubator is thin film photovoltaic strips – a cost-effective and light-weight way to create solar panels. The company is Xunlight Corporation and was recently featured in NewsweekThe CEO and founder of the company of the company, Xunming Deng, was present at the event, and told the governor he was attracted to Toledo because of UT’s solar research.


Isofoton representatives told Mr. Strickland they will choose their site from a list of states that includes Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia, and Ohio. 


The opening of a facility from Isofoton will undoubtedly be good news for the state that is finally chosen. Isofoton is a strong player in the solar field, with a global presence and products in every industry segment, from solar thermal, to cells and modules to High Concentration Photovoltaics. Isofoton has had an office for some time in Washington, but it is looking to increase its presence in the US market.
