First Solar has made the Promise of Thin Film a Reality and has become one of the fastest growing manufacturers of solar modules in the world having scaled its manufacturing operation to produce more than 20MW of solar modules in 2005. First Solar recently broke ground on a major expansion project to increase module production to 40MW in 2006 and 75MW in 2007. This successful scale-up transitions CdTe from the "development" to "expansion" phase and validates CdTe as an important technology for the solar industry's future
