JA Solar to supply over 185 MWs of solar cells to BP

Under the terms of the agreements, JA Solar will supply BP Solar with more than 100 MW next year. In a separate agreement, which began earlier this year, JA committed to provide BP with more than 85 MW of modules.

A “significant” portion of this has reportedly already been delivered. The company said the remainder of the 85 MW will be shipped in the fourth quarter of this year.

"We have been working with BP Solar, which has its headquarters in San Francisco, since 2008 and we are very pleased to extend our relationship, as they are one of the world’s largest integrated solar energy companies," said Dr. Peng Fang, CEO of JA Solar.

"With our leading cost structure, JA Solar provides BP Solar a cost advantage in the residential, commercial and utility markets. This agreement provides JA with firm orders through next year," he said.
