EDP Renewables selects First Solar for 1.8 GWdc PV solar modules

By Editor


EDP Renewables, which has presence in 28 markets, has selected First Solar for 1.8 gigawatts (GWdc) of photovoltaic (PV) solar modules.

The modules, which will be delivered up to 2028, will power US projects developed by EDP Renewables North America.

North America is the company’s biggest market in terms of installed capacity and production, where the company currently operates 475 MW of solar projects, has 1.6 GW of solar capacity under construction, and has a robust solar development pipeline across the continent.

In addition, EDPR operates more than 200 distributed generation solar sites throughout North America. Including both utility-scale and distributed generation, EDPR plans to add 4.8 gigawatts (GW) of solar capacity in North America in 2023-2026.

“EDP Renewables’ ambitious business plan calls for more than 4 GW of renewable capacity annually through 2026 with nearly half of the new clean energy generation to come from North America,” said Sandhya Ganapathy, chief executive officer, EDPR NA.

In 2019, EDP Renewables acquired a 50 percent stake in a 278 MW solar portfolio developed by First Solar.
