Maxeon Solar Technologies Ltd. will supply approximately 400MW of its high efficiency shingled bifacial performance line solar modules to Origis Energy in the United States for one of its utility-scale projects. Module deliveries will begin in June 2023 and end at the end 2023.
“This 400 MW procurement agreement with Maxeon Solar Technologies is an important component to fulfill the robust Origis solar portfolio,” says Guy Vanderhaegen, CEO and president of Origis Energy. “The Maxeon technology will help ensure our solar plants meet performance goals to provide clean, competitively priced energy to our customers across the U.S. Additionally, Maxeon continues to be a pioneer in sustainability initiatives including its leadership with Environment, Sustainability and Governance (ESG). ESG factors are important for all Origis stakeholders – from investment partners to utilities to corporate energy buyers. “
Produced using proprietary manufacturing processes, the Performance line solar modules leverage Maxeon’s shingled cell technology, protected by 83 granted patents. The Performance line uses bifacial monoPERC solar cells that are made on large format, eight-inch G12 wafers. This allows for increased efficiency and shade tolerance. It also reduces system lifetime energy costs.
“We are pleased to be selected by Origis Energy as a long-term partner,” comments Jeff Waters, CEO at Maxeon Solar Technologies. “Origis’ decision to invest in our Performance line validates the technology’s performance, durability and reliability advantage over conventional solar panels, as well as its competitiveness. Moreover, it proves the confidence utility-scale customers have in our ability to deliver on our commitments.”
