What about the Labor Requirements for Prevailing Wage for the 40% Domestic Content?

Solar projects with a maximum net output under 1MW (AC) have no prevailing wage requirement.

Under section 48(a)(9)(B)(i), projects that have a max net output of less than 1MW (measured in AC) are deemed to satisfy the
prevailing wage and apprenticeship requirements under 48(a)(9)(B)(iii). As a result, such “small energy projects” are generally
available for the 5x multiplier bonus credit rate available under section 48(a)(9)(A)(i).

Why Do TSI Modules qualify for 40% vs 30%


  • TSI modules meet all Domestic Content qualifiers by the U.S. Fed Government.
  •  100% manufactured in the U.S.
  •  All semi-conductor materials (CdTe) manufactured under the same roof as our modules in Perrysburg/Toledo Ohio. We import no cells, wafers, aluminum, wires, junction boxes etc.
