Solar Frontier closes deal to supply CIS modules for over 30MW of solar projects in India

Solar Frontier will be starting to put its Kunitomi plant to serious work as it recently closed a deal to supply over 30MW of its CIS solar modules to solar projects in India by the end of 2011. The deal with the National Solar Mission and Gujarat State intends to use Solar Frontier’s CIS modules in various solar projects as the company’s modules are said to deliver higher overall energy output under real weather conditions.
 
"We were very impressed with Solar Frontier’s CIS technology due to its high efficiency and low temperature coefficient," said one of the clients. "The temperatures are very high in the part of India where we are installing, so the fact that CIS technology gives more power output than other technologies at higher temperatures was a key factor for choosing Solar Frontier over other tenders. This project is just the first step in a long-term strategy for us to install more solar capacity going forward – and we will continue to partner with Solar Frontier for more projects in other parts of India."
