Solar panel manufacturer SolarWorld has announced a 10 million dollar expansion at its Hillsboro plant .
The expansion will add a new solar panel production line and around 200 jobs at the company's U.S. headquarters in Hillsboro.
It will increase the plant's capacity by 40 percent and bring the total number of employees up to around 900.
SolarWorld president Makesh Dulani says the expansion marks a turnaround for the company. Many thought U.S. solar manufacturing couldn't survive fierce competition from China.
