Thin-film solar manufacturer First Solar, Inc. is set to bring its products to China with the announcement of its first commercial demonstration project in Xinjiang province.
First Solar completed an agreement with Zhenfa New Energy Science & Technology Co., Ltd. to supply 2 megawatts of their thin-film modules to one of Zhenfa’s approved solar project sites by the first quarter of 2013.
Zhenfa is said to be one of the largest providers of integrated PV generation systems in China. Zhenfa New had an installed capacity of 410 MW by the end of 2011 and it plans to increase this to 1100 Mw by March 2013.
China is considered a favorable market for solar technologies and First Solar is eyeing further collaborations with Chinese partners as a means to make headway into the sector.
