First Solar to supply solar modules to enXco

By Greenech Lead America: enXco, an EDF Energies
Nouvelles Company, has signed a solar module supply agreement with First Solar.
First Solar will deliver 61 megawatts peak (MWp) of thin film modules for
enXco’s Catalina Solar Project located in Kern County, California. The delivery
is slated for September of 2012.

“We are pleased to enter into this agreement with First
Solar to supply a portion of the Catalina Solar Project. First Solar has been
and continues to be a good partner. Their technology remains one of the lowest
LCOE solar PV solutions,” said Kristina Peterson, vice president, Solar
Business Unit for enXco.

enXco will build Catalina Solar Project in two phases – the
first phase of approximately 60 MWp is targeted to go online by the end of 2012
and the remainder of the project by June 2013. The plant is expected to
generate enough clean energy to power the equivalent of about 35,000 homes
annually and will offset about 74,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions
every year.

“First Solar has a long-standing relationship with
EDF Energies Nouvelles and we’re excited to extend this to the United States
with enXco. We’re pleased to be a part of the Catalina Solar Project and
playing a role in its success as well as helping California reach its renewable
energy goals,” said Dana Diller, First Solar Vice President for U.S.
Business Development.
