First Solar cuts solar manufacturing costs

"With our goal of providing solutions at the lowest cost of our utility customers, and to ultimately provide an asset which competes with fossil fuel sources, we have to consider all aspects of the value chain. We want to minimize LCOE (Levelized Cost of Energy) while at the same time maximize the return for our project owners. And First Solar is uniquely positioned to provide both through driving and performance and execution from the module through the balance of systems, project development, and financing. All four of these elements must be optimized to achieve our goal of future cost parity." Rob Gillette, CEO of First Solar.
