EDF Energies Nouvelles, First Solar Expand PV Agreement


EDF Energies Nouvelles and First Solar have signed a supplemental agreement to their July 2007 deal, expanding the size of the order from 230 MWp to 290 MWp. The modules provided by First Solar will be used to build primarily ground-based photovoltaic plants in Europe – particularly in France.

EDF Energies Nouvelles says this additional order is consistent with its policy of securing an adequate supply of photovoltaic panels (430 MWp already secured between 2007 and 2012). It is intended to cover the acceleration of its expansion in solar energy, which is targeted at 400 MWp for its own account and for third parties by 2011.
