Flextronics, MEMC Expand Solar Panel Agreement

Electronics manufacturing services provider Flextronics has expanded an agreement with MEMC Electronic Materials to produce solar panels for MEMC's SunEdison subsidiary.

This expansion agreement includes the production of solar panels from Flextronics' Clean Tech Supersite in Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP), Malaysia. The MEMC-branded solar panels will be used by SunEdison for its solar photovoltaic (PV) projects.

Last December, the two companies signed an agreement under which Flextronics would manufacture solar PV panels for MEMC from its Newmarket, Ontario facility. With the new expansion agreement, Flextronics expects to build approximately 270 megawatts of solar panels annually for SunEdison in Malaysia.

"This partnership provides additional module capacity to support SunEdison's growth worldwide as we work to meet the growing global demand for solar energy," said Carlos Domenech, president of SunEdison.
