MiaSole& juwi to provide German rooftops with CIGS Solar Power
MiaSole has already provided juwi Solar with 1MW of solar photovoltaic power units to install in Germany and Texas. Juwi will fix a further 7.5 MW of modules in Germany during the second half of 2010
MiaSole, a leading manufacturer of Copper Indium Gallium Selenide (CIGS) thin-film photovoltaic solar panels, has agreed to supply juwi Solar 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."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."
MiaSole develops CIGS thin-film photovoltaic solar panels and is based in California, The firm currently operates two manufacturing facilities with construction beginning on the third factory in 2010.
