RW's onsite manufacturing model provided a substantial economic impact for the local community; providing employment and training, as well as utilizing businesses and contractors for the production and finish of the cell modules. At full production, 75% of the manufacturing facility's staff was employed from the local community and 60% of the raw materials required for the production of cell modules were procured from local suppliers.
