First Solar, juwi sign sponsorship deal with cycling team



First Solar and juwi solar have become the latest names in the solar industry to enter into the world of sports sponsorship after they signed a joint contract with an amateur U.S. road cycling team. The move comes just a few months after Yingli Green secured a three-year contract to sponsor German football club Bayern Munich.

The First Solar-juwi team will compete nationally and is made up of 10 world-class cyclists, including two-time U.S. champion Michael Olheiser. Its next event is the four-day Redlands Bicycle Classic, starting on March 31, a race that will see the cyclists pass First Solar’s proposed 850MW Stateline and Desert Sunlight projects.

“First Solar is committed to sustainable energy solutions that promote a clean, emission-free environment and is proud to partner with juwi on this sponsorship opportunity,” said TK Kallenbach, president of First Solar’s Components Business Group.
