When talking about solar energy, there are many variations of the topic and First Solar addresses just about all of them. These topics go beyond just making a solar energy product, but extends into almost every avenue involving solar; from the ground up. As a company, First Solar has created benchmarks in the industry that are a tough act to follow and has become an international lead in clean energy.
Being the first can be a great thing, but it also represents an incredible ability to take risks, where others would not dare.

First Solar has made their name in clean energy and can add a number of ‘firsts’ to their name:
First solar company to produce 1GW in a single year. First solar company to break the record of $1/watt cost barrier in manufacturing. First solar company to have implemented a PV module recycling program on a global scale. Holds the world record for CdTe (14.4%) thin film solar module and cell efficiency (18.7%). The company has invested in everything solar, including solar power plant development and is the only thin-film solar module company that is included in the Top Ten for solar module capacity sales in 2012.

At one point, First Solar was partnered with Siemens in some joint ventures that could have potential world-changing abilities. However, when Siemens dropped out of the picture, another solar energy giant, Desertec, stepped in and the team is destined to do great things. Desertec has made their name on an international level with achievements throughout Saudi Arabia and Europe. Both companies have offices around the world and support a variety of solar projects. The visionary excellence of the two companies, working in tandem, will be the stuff that scientists and corporate businesses will be talking about in the renewable and sustainable energy fields for years to come.

    I guess this should show Siemens a thing or two. They obviously had other corporate plans, but what got into their heads to back out of this deal? While we don’t know what has gone on behind closed doors, First Solar seems to be setting records and moving forward in the fast lane. I bet Desertec is happy that they are on board, and everyone is waiving goodbye to Siemens.

    This is great news and something that U.S. companies really should pay attention to. When you partner with the best, have ideas that are out of the norm and keep your research staff in their little world, the outcome is bound to be good. Renewable energy is the real important area that we need to keep in our eyesight. Without companies like this, we can’t progress.

    Talk about a company that kept their eyes on their final goal! It sounds like they have achieved success and overcome outrageous odds, while remaining focused on their dream. We need more companies like First Solar in the world. They are definitely one that the investors should be aware of. Wouldn’t be surprised if their stock starts going through the roof.
