Thin-film module maker First Solar, Tempe, Ariz., announced a 100 percent stake in Maryland Solar, a 20MW (AC) photovoltaic solar power project in Hagerstown, Md. The project, which has a contract to sell electricity and renewable energy credits to FirstEnergy Solutions, is expected to start construction in Q2 2012 and be completed in Q4 2012.
