Squire Patton Boggs has represented First Solar, a leading global provider of comprehensive photovoltaic (PV) solar solutions, in signing a framework supply agreement with Geronimo Energy, a National Grid company. Under the terms of the agreement, First Solar will supply 415 megawatts (MW) of its high-performance, eco-efficient Series 6 PV modules in 2022.
First Solar’s Series 6 PV module sets “industry benchmarks for quality, reliability, design and environmental performance.” Designed to deliver cleaner solar electricity, Series 6 has a carbon footprint that is six times lower than conventional-produced crystalline silicon PV panels.
This latest transaction has grown the relationship between the two companies to over 1.4 gigawatts (GW) of both systems and module technology sales.
The Squire Patton Boggs team was led by partner Kevin Levey, with associate Hannah Zapfe.
