Solar developer Origis Energy has placed an order for 750 MW of First Solar thin-film solar panels. The CdTe panels will be delivered in 2024 to Origis projects in the United States.
First Solar and Origis share a long-standing relationship spanning five years and over 1.5 GW of thin film modules.
“This 750-MW solar agreement builds on a long-term alliance between the First Solar and Origis teams,” said Samir Verstyn, chief investment officer and operations officer, Origis Energy. “Front and center is always our commitment to meet customer clean energy goals. This mission has been put to the test by the unprecedented headwinds impacting the solar industry. Such an environment makes it even more important to work with market partners who have consistently delivered. We applaud First Solar’s build out of its domestic PV solar manufacturing capacity.”
“At First Solar, we value long-term relationships with partners like Origis because they are based on trust and a respect for mutually-held values and principles,” said Georges Antoun, chief commercial officer, First Solar. “At a time of unprecedented supply and pricing volatility across the solar industry, our ability to deliver and stand behind our commitments is a crucial differentiator that serves to strengthen relationships like these. We thank the team at Origis for their continued trust in First Solar and our technology.”
