First Solar’s EPC team has installed the 10 millionth PV panel at a utility-scale PV plant, the company has announced. The module was installed at the 550MW Desert Sunlight solar farm in Riverside County, California. The project is being constructed for NextEra Energy and GE Energy Financial Services.
“Today’s milestone underscores First Solar’s leadership in delivering integrated PV solar power plants, and it’s only just the beginning,” Jim Lamon, First Solar senior vice president of EPC and operations and maintenance, commented. “It’s also fitting to install our 10 millionth EPC module at the Desert Sunlight project, which will set a solar record as well. When completed in 2015, it will be one of the two largest PV solar projects in the world, along with the 550 MW Topaz project we’re building in San Luis Obispo County.”
