Solar Frontier and Welspun Renewables announced today the signing of a 100MW solar module supply agreement. Solar Frontier will supply its CIS thin-film solar modules to Welspun Renewables. Solar Frontier's CIS modules will be used in Welspun Renewables' upcoming solar power projects in India at sites with high levels of solar irradiation.
"Solar energy is a priority sector for meeting India's high demand for clean, renewable and economical energy. The government of India has set a target of 175GW of renewable energy by 2022, of which 100GW will be solar energy. Agreement with Solar Frontier brings us one step closer to meeting our green energy commitment," said Welspun Renewables' Director, Sindoor Mittal. "Welspun Renewables is committed to achieving high level quality benchmarks at all of its project sites, and because of this we prefer to work with Tier 1 technology providers. We have worked with Solar Frontier on multiple projects before, and we do so again based on the proven high electricity yield and quality of its CIS technology, on top of the company's close support."
"We are honoured to continue working with Welspun Renewables on its mission to help India meet its growing energy requirements in an efficient, environmentally-friendly manner," said Atsuhiko Hirano, CEO of Solar Frontier. "This is a landmark agreement for Solar Frontier as we continue to develop our presence in key international markets with companies that are sustainable and show willingness to work closely together."
