First Solar PV modules

First Solar signed an agreement with National Grid Renewables for 2 gigawatts (GW) DC of thin film photovoltaic (PV) solar modules for delivery in 2024 and 2025 throughout the United States.

Over the past decade, National Grid Renewables and First Solar have partnered on multiple projects, including the recently operational 200-megawatt (MW) Prairie Wolf Solar Project in Illinois and the currently under construction Noble Solar (275 MW) and Storage (125 MWh) Project in Texas.

A Minneapolis-headquartered business, National Grid Renewables is part of the Ventures division of National Grid and has a portfolio of solar, wind, and energy storage projects located throughout the US in various stages of development, construction and operation.

“Experienced project developers and owner-operators like National Grid Renewables understand the criticality of both, insulating themselves from pricing and supply volatility, and staying true to their values and principles,” Georges Antoun, chief commercial officer, First Solar, said.
