First Solar now serving 10 to 30 kW PV market


Justifying its decision, the U.S. based photovoltaic module manufacturer says it is responding to customer demand.

"Commercial rooftops in the 10 to 30 kW range represent a multi-gigawatt market globally," said TK Kallenbach, president of First Solar’s Components Business Group. "This expansion gives our customers additional flexibility to serve smaller and medium-sized commercial and industrial rooftops. It is a natural extension of our thin film module capability and allows our customers to continue to learn and apply innovative technology and installation techniques to a growing market."

The company explains that typical 10 to 30 kW photovoltaic systems consist of between 125 and 375 First Solar modules. They additionally require between 90 to 270 square meters of roof space.
