enXco Announces Solar Module Supply Agreement With First Solar


June 20, 2012 - SAN DIEGO, CA

enXco, an EDF Energies Nouvelles Company, today announced that they have signed a solar module supply agreement with First Solar Inc. (NASDAQ: FSLR). First Solar will deliver 61 megawatts peak (MWp) of thin film modules starting in September 2012 for enXco's Catalina Solar Project located in Kern County, California.

Catalina Solar will be built in two phases -- the first phase of approximately 60 MWp is targeted to go online by the end of 2012 and the remainder of the project by June 2013. The plant will generate enough clean energy to power the equivalent of about 35,000 homes annually and will offset about 74,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions every year.

"We are pleased to enter into this agreement with First Solar to supply a portion of the Catalina Solar Project," said Kristina Peterson, Vice President, Solar Business Unit for enXco. "First Solar has been and continues to be a good partner. Their technology remains one of the lowest LCOE solar PV solutions."

"First Solar has a long-standing relationship with EDF Energies Nouvelles and we're excited to extend this to the United States with enXco," said Dana Diller, First Solar Vice President for U.S. Business Development. "We're pleased to be a part of the Catalina Solar Project and playing a role in its success as well as helping California reach its renewable energy goals."
