Italian utility giant Enel SpA plans to build one of the largest US solar factories, joining several clean technology manufacturers that announced new plants following passage of the country’s landmark climate law.

The planned plant will make solar modules and cells, Enel North America said Thursday in a statement. It’s expected to have a minimum annual production capacity of 3 gigawatts. Enel is evaluating potential US sites and expects to begin construction in mid-2023.
