SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Suntech Power Holdings Co., Ltd. (NYSE: STP), the world's largest producer of solar panels, has delivered more than one gigawatt of solar panels to customers throughout North and South America. The milestone was passed in July 2012, distinguishing Suntech as one of the first global solar companies with a one gigawatt track record in the region.
"This is a great milestone for our team and, most of all, a tribute to our customers – their success is our success. Although it's a highly-competitive period for solar manufacturers, there's never been a better time to be a solar customer and that's what matters most to our industry's longevity," said John Lefebvre, President of Suntech America. "Utilities from Arizona to Chile are recognizing solar's unique value proposition and ability to deliver low-risk, long-term price stability in an energy era defined by fossil fuel price instability. Solar offers a brilliant value proposition today that will only improve with time."
