(Hillsboro, OR)  --  Advanced solar panels are now rolling off the assembly line in Hillsboro.  SunPower announced yesterday that production is underway in the factory that once housed competitor, SolarWorld.  That company went belly-up in 2017 and blamed it on cheap Chinese solar panels.  Sun Power management says their new panels are more efficient and have trade protections which make the Chinese panels cost more.
