Solar Frontier To Install Its Largest CIS Facility In North America For Juwi
The solar innovator says that achieving this milestone project immediately after opening its gigawatt-scale factory in Japan highlights the commercial attraction of its CIS modules.
Juwi Solar Inc. (JSI) has chosen Solar Frontier to supply 3.8 MW of solar modules for a project to be operated by a regulated utility in the Northeast United States.
When the project is completed by the end of 2011, it will be the largest Solar Frontier installation to date in North America, and one of the largest solar projects in the Northeast. It is the latest competitive win in Solar Frontier’s global strategy to work with nationally and globally leading companies.
