SANTA CLARA, USA: MiaSole, the leading manufacturer of Copper Indium Gallium Selenide (CIGS) thin-film photovoltaic solar panels, announced purchase agreements to supply juwi Solar GmbH with CIGS photovoltaic modules.
The larger agreement is for 7.5 MW of MiaSole's CIGS thin-film modules and will be used in Q3 and Q4 of 2010 for ground mounted and rooftop projects throughout Germany.
This follows 1MW of CIGS modules delivered to juwi in Q2 2010 for projects in Germany and San Antonio, Texas.
"We are very encouraged that MiaSole is supplying its proven and bank financeable modules for a number of projects developed by juwi solar," said Lars Falck, Managing Director of juwi Solar GmbH. "We expect that our relationship with MiaSole will grow to help us meet the increasing needs for solar power together."
The MiaSole module incorporates a glass-glass design, suitable for the most rigorous snow load requirement and design features such as a low open circuit voltage and interconnecting cables that reduce owner's balance of systems cost versus comparable thin film modules.
"MiaSole is proud to be supplying panels to one of Germany's leading renewable energy companies, juwi solar," said MiaSole CEO Joseph Laia. "MiaSole modules are the cost effective solution for utility scale installations, both roof top and ground mount, and this is the beginning of what we hope to be a long term partnership focused on large scale solar deployments."
