Client Solar Frontier recently announced the signing of a supply agreement with EDF Renewable Energy (formerly enXco Inc.) for up to 150 megawatts peak of Solar Frontier solar modules. The modules will use a semiconductor blend of copper indium gallium and selenium ("CIGS"). Targeted for the Catalina Solar Project in Kern County, California, the panel deployment is set to become the world's largest CIGS installation and one of the largest solar installations of any type globally.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the contract represents the largest deal ever for the CIGS thin film technology. The Journal further concludes that Solar Frontier must now be considered "a formidable contender in the crowded solar market."

"This is a landmark moment not only for Solar Frontier but the CI(G)S industry as a whole," said Gregory W. Ashley, chief operating officer of Solar Frontier Americas. "We have demonstrated successfully that the unique characteristics of CIS technology are compelling to major customers by delivering more KWh over the lifetime of a project for a lower cost. We see this project as a launch pad for ever greater CIS achievement in the United States and across the world."

Stoel Rives assisted Solar Frontier in drafting and negotiating the supply agreement. Dave Hattery led the Stoel Rives client team.
