If Sun Edison wants to develop solar projects in Ontario and get theirparent firm, MEMC’s silicon involved, they have to make modules in theprovince.
To that end, MEMC (WFR) just announced that it will start producingMEMC-branded solar panels through Flextronics (FLEX) in Ontario to serve the local market, starting in the second quarter of 2011. Localcontent requirements are rising from 50 percent to 60 percent in 2011.
"This initiative not only satisfies the domestic content requirementfor SunEdison, but also signals a significant long-term investment inthe Ontario solar market," said Carlos Domenech, President ofSunEdison.
