First Solar

As a leading provider of solar modules, First Solar has seen orders go through the roof as interest in sustainable energy proves a fruitful asset both long- and short-term. The firm has had to drastically expand operations and facilities in order to accommodate the upsurge in demand it’s met this year. Demand in North America alone has soared: in 2010 1GW was required, jumping to 2GW in 2011 and 3GW by 2012. One of the main reasons for this firm’s particular success has been in its ability to provide goods at such affordable prices, without bolting on quality.
