The agreement marks Strata’s purchase of more than 1,000 MW DC from First Solar.
“We are pleased to be extending our relationship with First Solar,” said Markus Willem, Strata Solar CEO. “Strata has a relentless focus on quality, efficiency and flawless execution, so it’s critical for us to have world-class technology partners like First Solar.”
