The company shows a growth in total revenue of €473 million, up from 2008’s €402.5 million. In addition, their module sales increased by around 70%, from 120MW in 2008 to more than 200MW in 2009.
Phoenix Solar’s components and systems segment generated €299.0 million, an increase from 2008’s €214.6 million, while their power plants division had a drop in revenue to €174.0 million from last year’s €187.8 million. Finally, the international business profits totaled €27.6 million, or 5.8%.
