First Solar to supply 200MW of Series 6 CdTe PV modules to DESRI
First Solar Inc of Tempe, AZ, USA – which makes cadmium telluride (CdTe)-based thin-film photovoltaic modules as well as providing engineering, procurement & construction (EPC) services – has completed a module sale deal with an affiliate of D. E. Shaw Renewable Investments LLC (DESRI) totaling 200MWdc and with delivery dates in 2019.
First Solar will provide its new large-area Series 6 modules for DESRI’s near-term pipeline of projects going into construction in the next two years in the USA. In addition, First Solar signed operations and maintenance (O&M) contracts for two projects that DESRI is developing.
“We are proud to build on our strong relationship with this trusted partner,” says First Solar’s chief commercial officer Georges Antoun. In addition to this module sale, DESRI has acquired three solar projects from First Solar since 2016 – the 40MWac Cuyama Solar Project in Santa Barbara County, CA, the 31MWac Portal Ridge Solar Project in Los Angeles County, CA, and the 11MWac Rancho Seco Solar Project in Sacramento County, CA.
