ATLANTA – Today, solar panel manufacturer Suniva announced that thanks in part to incentives in President Biden and Democrats’ Inflation Reduction Act, the company is reopening and its solar cell plant in Norcross – a project that is expected to create up to 240 jobs and generate enough electricity to power 750,000 homes. The company, which went bankrupt during the previous presidential administration “amid a glut of cheap Asian solar panels”, directly credited the Inflation Reduction Act – including solar manufacturing tax credits in the IRA championed by Senator Jon Ossoff – with making the reopening possible.
“This announcement is yet another example of Bidenomics delivering for Georgia. President Biden and Georgia Democrats’ Inflation Reduction Act is bringing back American manufacturing, creating new good-paying jobs across our state, and making Georgia a leader in the industries of the future,” said DPG spokesperson Ellie Schwartz. “In contrast to MAGA Republicans’ failed economic policies that cost us manufacturing jobs and created incentives to ship jobs overseas, the Inflation Reduction Act – which every single Georgia Republican voted against – continues to build our economy from the bottom up and middle out.”
