SolarWorld signs 65 MW supply agreement for Panasonic's Oregon solar plant


The U.S. division of Germany-headquartered vertically integrated solar company SolarWorld struck a deal at last week’s Solar Power International (SPI) exhibition in Anaheim, California, to supply 65 MW of solar modules to a Panasonic solar project.

SolarWorld will supply its high-efficiency, 72-cell solar panels to Panasonic Enterprise Solutions Co., the division of Panasonic Corp. that is developing the solar facility in Oregon’s Malheur County Rural Renewable Energy Development Zone.

Shipment will begin in 2016, confirmed SolarWorld, and marks the U.S. company’s single-largest supply deal, outstripping a previous 50 MW contract to supply a solar farm in an undisclosed Central Asia location, and surpassing a previous Americas milestone of 33 MW, which were delivered to a project in Ontario, Canada.

"This agreement once again demonstrates the value that SolarWorld’s technology holds for owner-operators who depend on the enduring reliability and performance of its products," said SolarWorld U.S. VP for sales and marketing Ardes Johnson. "As a major world producer with headquarters for the Americas located in Oregon, our success in securing this agreement shows that we are fulfilling Oregon’s faith in our company to compete on value."
