First Solar Starts Operation of Solar Plant in Telangana

The 20 MW PV project is part of a larger 200 MW projects portfolio which is wholly-owned by the company and is in various stages of construction in India. The project is contracted under a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) to sell power to the Southern Power Distribution Corporation of Telangana at a tariff of INR 6.49/kwhr.

First Solar Modules to Power 200MW Solar Photovoltaic Project in Dubai

First Solar, Inc. signed an agreement to supply its high performance photovoltaic (PV) modules to power the 200 megawatt (MW)AC second phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates. Significantly, the utility scale solar plant will be the large facility of its kind in the Middle East when completed in early 2017. The plant will produce enough energy to power 30,000 average homes in the UAE and will displace over 469,650 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year. The project will be powered by over 2.36 million First Solar modules, compared to the 152,880 that were installed in the 13MWAC first phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park. The plant will be built over an area of almost 4.5 million square meters, sufficient to cover as many as 100 soccer pitches. First Solar modules already power the 13MWAC first phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park and will be installed at the 52.5MWAC Shams Ma’an solar PV plant, currently under construction in Jordan and scheduled for completion in the second half of 2016.
