First Solar establishes Japan supply agreement with XSOL

First Solar Inc of Tempe, AZ, USA, which makes thin-film photovoltaic modules based on cadmium telluride (CdTe) as well as providing engineering, procurement & construction (EPC) services, and Kyoto-based XSOL Co Ltd, a distributor and integrator of solar systems in Japan, have signed an agreement to supply First Solar’s modules in Japan. The agreement targets the installation of 100MWDC per year.

Last November, First Solar announced plans to invest $100m in the development of mega solar power projects in Japan. The agreement with XSOL enables the firm’s technology to be supplied to smaller-scale projects as well.

“This agreement with XSOL enables us to deliver safe and clean solar electricity on an even broader basis,” says Karl Brutsaert, head of business development for Tokyo-based First Solar Japan. “XSOL is a leader in solar power in Japan,” he comments.

“First Solar modules are recognized by third-party scientists as leading in ecological efficiency, and First Solar already has in place a globally proven module recycling program, enabling us to meet our commitments to save the global environment and broaden solar power accessibility,” notes XSOL director Akira Waki.
