Needs to have the giga- prefix on it - seems like every large battery factory out there is being branded as a giga-something...

Wonder what panels they'll produce in terms of efficiency/power output?  I guess if you're doubling the global capacity it probably doesn't matter all that much as it'll force prices down across the board.

The plant is making panels of a potential peak capacity, not energy.  All the panels it makes in a year added up would have a peak power output of 60GWp if they were all on at the same time, in optimal conditions.  It says nothing about how many kWh each panel would produce if installed depending upon its local conditions. So the unit is correct.

China works at a truly amazing scale, I worked in Shenzhen  for a while, incredible energy & growth. If the costs per panel drop by a significant margin i'll install a 2nd system.
