SunEdison says it has shipped over 1 GW of Silvantis solar PV modules, making the company one of the top five solar module manufacturers in the world. Growth over three years was driven by strong demand from the company’s utility and commercial business groups.
Production of solar modules is a key element in the vertical integration of SunEdison’s energy business. SunEdison produces the silicon, specifies the technology and production of solar modules, develops business across global market segments, and provides ongoing monitoring of completed solar power plants. To limit its capital outlay, SunEdison partners with experienced contract manufacturers who assemble its modules to specification.
