EnXco taps First Solar for panels
First Solar Inc. has received a contract to supply 61 megawatts of solar panels to a project being developed by enXco in California.
Tempe-based First Solar (Nasdaq: FSLR) will start delivery of the panels in September for the Catalina Solar Project. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
First Solar officials said they have a previous relationship with enXco’s parent company, EDF Energies Nouvelles Co. Co. based in Paris, and look at the relationship with enXon as a continuation of that.
Officials with enXco, which also has an office in Portland, said they went with First Solar because it represented a lower cost solution.
Catalina, being built in Kern County, Calif., is a 130-megawatt solar plant that will sell its power to San Diego Gas & Electric. The first roughly 60-megawatt first phase will be online later this year with the remainder coming online next year.
