Anwell Technologies says its wholly-owned subsidiary, Sungen International, has signed an MOU with US-based Solargen Energy, Inc. to supply amorphous silicon (a-Si) thin film solar panels for Solargen’s large scale commercial solar farm projects.
Solargen develops, owns and operates large-scale commercial solar farms, with an emphasis on deploying next generation thin film solar panel technologies.
It is in the process of developing what could be one of the world’s largest thin film solar farms in California, and is expected to supply California with clean and renewable energy in the years to come with planned capacity of 1.25GW.
This would be an important step in meeting the high Renewable Portfolio Standards set by the state of California, where at least 33% of the state's electricity must come from renewable sources by 2020.
Under the terms of the non-binding MOU, Sungen could provide up to 1.25GW of solar panels for Solargen’s thin film solar development project. Starting from 2011, Sungen will supply an estimated 2MW of capacity to Solargen per week.
