Flextronics and MEMC expand PV panel agreement

Flextronics says it expects to build approximately 270 megawatts of photovoltaic panels annually for SunEdison in Malaysia. The MEMC-branded panels will then be used by SunEdison for its worldwide photovoltaic projects.

"This partnership provides additional module capacity to support SunEdison’s growth worldwide as we work to meet the growing global demand for solar energy," commented Carlos Domenech, president of SunEdison. "It also allows us to strengthen our relationship with Flextronics and build on what we are accomplishing together in Canada."

Today’s announcement follows an earlier agreement between the two companies, signed last December, under which Flextronics will manufacture photovoltaic panels for MEMC from its Newmarket, Ontario facility.
