Solar Company to Bring Jobs to County

​​​​​China Sunergy Co., Ltd., a specialized solar cell and module manufacturer, announced today that Sunergy America LLC (a subsidiary of China Sunergy Co., Ltd.) entered into a lease agreement with McClellan Business Park in Sacramento County.​

The new plant will be located in a 140,000 square-foot building in McClellan Park and will be the company’s first U.S. facility. Expected to begin operations in May 2017, the company will create more than 200 new jobs locally.

“The arrival of CSUN Solar to McClellan Park is outstanding news for the region,” said District 1 County Supervisor Phil Serna. “CSUN could have chosen any site in the United States for their manufacturing and assembly operations, and they recognized the value of doing business in Sacramento County. This signifies real progress as our business community continues to grow.”

Sacramento County’s Office of Economic Development partnered with other area organizations, such as the Greater Sacramento Economic Council, Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD), the Sacramento Employment and Training Agency (SETA) and the California Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) to assist in completing the lease transaction.

The new plant will have fully automatic production lines and will aim to serve customers across the United States.​
