Solar Frontier has announced that it has been selected by juwi solar Inc. (JSI), to supply 3.8 megawatts of solar modules for a project to be operated by a regulated utility in the Northeast United States. When the project is completed by the end of 2011, it will be the largest Solar Frontier installation to date in North America, and one of the largest solar projects in the Northeast.
It is the latest competitive win in Solar Frontier's global strategy to work with nationally and globally leading companies.
The solar panels will be produced at Solar Frontier's new gigawatt-scale Kunitomi plant in Miyazaki, Japan, using Solar Frontier's proprietary CIS technology ("CIS" stands for key ingredients copper, indium and selenium).
The Kunitomi factory is unparalleled for its combination of advanced automation, scale, and low-energy, end-to-end processing.
"Achieving this milestone project immediately after opening our gigawatt-scale factory in Japan highlights the commercial attraction of our CIS modules," said Greg Ashley, COO of Solar Frontier Americas.
"Our work with JSI is a strong indicator of the growing confidence that global markets have in Solar Frontier's economical and ecological solar panels."
"JSI provides the most competitive utility-scale solar developments for our clients," said Michael Martin, managing director at JSI, "and Solar Frontier's CIS technology will allow us to deliver a low cost of energy and long-term, reliable energy production for this project and its long-term owner."
