ersol Solar Energy AG has signed a contract with Germany-based polysilicon supplier Wacker Chemie AG for the delivery of silicon from 2010 onwards. The contract will enable ersol to generate an additional output of about 300 MW of crystalline solar cells over a period of nine years.
"ersol still believes that silicon will remain the limiting factor in the PV industry in the near future," says Dr. Claus Beneking, CEO of ersol." To secure growth, we decided to sign a further long-term contract with Wacker. The agreed silicon prices enable us to offer our solar cells to ersol customers at attractive rates under equally long-term contracts."
