SolarWorld AG on Friday said it is shutting down its California production operation and consolidating the work in Hillsboro as it strives to keep costs competitive with rivals in Asia.
The German maker of solar panels and modules will lay off 186 workers at its Camarillo, Calif. plant, said spokesman Ben Santarris.
