Paris, France [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] EDF Energies Nouvelles has ordered an additional 60 megawatts (MW) of thin-film photovoltaic panels from First Solar. The company has increased its initial order of 230 MW to 290 MW having signed a supplemental agreement to their July, 2007 deal.
The modules provided by First Solar will be used to build primarily ground-based photovoltaic plants in France and other locations in Europe.
This additional order is part of EDF Energies Nouvelles’ policy of securing its supply of photovoltaic panels, with 430 MW already secured between 2007 and 2012. The group aims to build 400 MW in photovoltaic power plants for its own account and for third parties by 2011.
