DuPont, Yingli Sign $100 Million Solar Supply Agreement

Yingli Green Energy Holding Co., the world’s largest solar-panel manufacturer, signed a $100 million supply and power plant agreement with DuPont Co. (DD)

The largest U.S. chemical company by market value will sell metalization paste that increases solar-cell performance and polyvinyl fluoride film to protect panels, Wilmington, Delaware-based DuPont said today in a statement.

The deal includes plans for Yingli to build a solar power plant at a DuPont facility in China, with the potential for other projects. It expands on a $100 million agreement signed in February 2012.
