First Solar shows French polish
Contract with Photosol for modules totalling 107MW for 14 projects
First Solar has been contracted by French developer Photosol to supply photovoltaic modules totalling 106.5MW for 14 projects in France.
The projects are part of the third procurement round initiated by France’s Commission de Régulation de l’Energie, First Solar said.
They will be located in central and southwest France and will range in size from 4.5MW to 43MW, with Jayme da Costa Energie providing the engineering, procurement and construction for all the projects.
Photosol managing director David Guinard said: “Our decision to select First Solar’s thin film modules was not only driven by the cost-competitiveness and proven performance advantage, but also by the significant environmental benefits that its module technology offers.”
