Leading the world’s sustainable energy future
First Solar is a leading global provider of responsibly-produced solar modules advancing the fight against climate change. The company has placed innovation at the heart of its business model, spending over $1.4bn cumulatively in the R&D of its differentiated photovoltaic technology. The company’s thin film technology encapsulates a semiconductor 33 times thinner than a human hair between two reinforced sheets of glass to generate clean electricity for 30+ years. As the EU strives towards the Renewable Energy Directive’s goals of 32% renewables by 2030, solar will be an essential component of the European electricity grid.
