Solar Frontier's CIS modules chosen for 14MW module supply agreement in midwestern US

Tokyo-based Solar Frontier – the largest manufacturer of CIS (copper indium selenium) thin-film photovoltaic (PV) solar modules – says that it will supply its CIS solar module technology for two solar energy projects (each 7MW) near Indianapolis, IN, USA. Construction has already begun and both projects are expected to be completed before the end of 2015.

Solar Frontier signed the module supply agreement with a California-based solar developer, investor and long-term owner of solar energy facilities.

The projects will be constructed by Vaughn Industries LLC of Carey, OH, a full-service electrical/mechanical specialty contractor that has been in business for over 50 years. "We are anticipating higher energy production and respective lower LCOE [levelized cost of electricity] on these projects than conventional solar modules through the installation of Solar Frontier's CIS technology," comments Vaughn Industries' CEO Tim Vaughn.

Previously, at the end of August, after signing a module supply agreement with a California-based solar equipment supplier and initiating the first of a series of shipments, Solar Frontier said that it supplying its CIS solar modules for a 26MW project near Raleigh, NC, USA that is also being constructed by Vaughn Industries. "Solar Frontier is pleased to add this project to our growing footprint in the Americas and, as we expand our presence in the market, to add Vaughn Industries to our expanding network of trusted national construction leaders," commented Solar Frontier Americas' chief operating officer Charles Pimentel.
