First Solar to supply another 400MW of modules to Strata over 2017-18

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, has signed an agreement with US-based Strata Solar LLC (which provides utility-scale, commercial and industrial solar PV systems) for the procurement of an incremental 400MWDC of First Solar's modules, with delivery expected from 2017 into 2018. Strata expects to install the modules in a series of solar projects in the southern and eastern USA.

With this agreement, Strata will have purchased more than 1000MWDC from First Solar in a long-standing relationship between the two firms. "We are pleased to be extending our relationship with First Solar," says Strata Solar's CEO Markus Willem.

"This deal shows confidence in the continued strength of the utility-scale solar market in the US," says Georges Antoun, First Solar's president, US. Antoun said the agreement demonstrates the sustainability of utility-scale project development. "We see ongoing opportunity for continued growth over the next several years," he adds.

Antoun noted that First Solar has now sold more than 1.8GW of modules in the USA Southeast, with modules either sold to outside developers, EPC contractors, or used in First Solar's own projects.
