First Solar Contracted for 1.3 MW Solar Order

First Solar has been selected as the primary solar photovoltaic (PV) module supplier for a solar power plant located in the northeast region of Bavaria, Germany.

First Solar will supply 1.3 MW of its Compound Thin Semiconductor (CTS) solar modules for the Dimbach Solar Park. Approximately 650 kW has already been commissioned with the remainder of the solar park to be installed by the end of this year. When completed, the Dimbach Solar Park will be one of the world’s largest single installations of thin-film solar modules. “First Solar CTS modules provide an excellent value, satisfying the PV system investor’s goal of using proven technology to maximize return on investment over the lifetime of the system,” said Bernhard Beck, founder and president of Beck Energy GmbH. System integrator and project developer Beck Energy GmbH has done development work on the solar park. Through Beck Energy, private investors and funds have invested in solar arrays installed in the Dimbach Solar Park in order to gain a return on their investment. The German Renewable Energy (EEG) Law, which guarantees a fixed feed-in tariff for 20 years, enables the Dimbach Solar Park to connect to the utility grid and sell power to the utility company at good price. Citing the particularly large project size, First Solar’s CEO, Mike Ahearn, called the supply order a major vote of confidence in their thin-film solar PV. “First Solar’s involvement in increasingly larger solar power plants reflects on the strong field performance of our modules, as well as our increasing production capacity,” Ahearn said.
