Tokyo, Japan (SPX) Dec 11, 2012
Solar Frontier has received orders from Mitsui and Co., Ltd., and its partners for 92,000 CIS thin-film modules for use in utility-scale solar projects throughout Japan. Totalling 14.1 MW, these CIS modules will be installed in four projects, starting with Yamanashi Mega-Solar (provisional name) in Kai City and Nirasaki City, Yamanashi Prefecture (total: 10.3 MW).
Mitsui and its partners have announced plans to invest 9 billion yen in the operation of utility-scale solar projects across 10 locations in Japan during fiscal 2013, including at least four projects using Solar Frontier modules.
Panel delivery for one of the projects began in early November, and delivery for the two projects in Yamanashi Prefecture is scheduled to start soon. Solar Frontier and Mitsui are also discussing other solar projects where Solar Frontier's high-performing CIS modules will be used.
Solar Frontier CIS modules are being selected by customers worldwide for their better project economics under real-world conditions. Due to their proprietary design, they are not as prone to adverse effects from shadows or high temperatures, resulting in a faster investment payback time over silicon-based solar panels.
Solar Frontier modules also provide consistent quality and performance befitting their "Made in Japan" label, and come with a 20-year performance warranty, one of the highest among Japanese manufacturers.
Solar Frontier is working to ensure a clean, safe supply of energy through renewable energy, as well as contributing to "local energy generation for local consumption".
