Hanwha Solutions: PV Business, Industry Conditions Look Optimistic
JANUARY 12, 2022


We expect the U.S. to pass the Solar Energy for Manufacturing of America act in 1H22. The act should provide a KRW142.8bn boost to pretax profit per year from Hanwha Solutions’ U.S. module plant (1.7GWh capacity) alone. If REC Silicon’s polysilicon plant (18,000 tonne capacity; acquired in late 2021) is converted into a photovoltaic module plant, the annual tax benefits from SEMA should be around KRW1.5tn. We believe a monumental change is imminent for the company’s U.S. photovoltaics business, making Hanwha Solutions the most deserving of attention in 2022.
