SunEdison & Q-Cells Sign 800-MW Module Development Deal

SunEdison announced that the company has entered into a 5-year, 800-megawatt (MW) development agreement in North America with Q-Cells International USA Corporation.

Under the development agreement, Q-Cells will dedicate solar modules to meet total capacity of up to 800 MW. In addition, the companies will jointly develop and operate PV solar power systems in North America.

“This development agreement uniquely positions SunEdison to bring solar to a meaningful scale for the industry and our customers,” said Carlos Domenech, COO for SunEdison. “As a pioneer of the solar energy services model, we are pleased to bring Q-Cells’ world-class solar technology to the market in the context of a fully managed, long-term solution.”

SunEdison also announced recently that it is working with General Motors to build a 1.2-MW solar system for the automaker’s Balitmore, Maryland transmission assembly plant. The company is also working with Progress Energy Carolinas to build a 1.2-MW plant in Wilmington, North Carolina.
