SINGAPORE (ICIS)--First Solar will deliver 100 megawatts (MW) of utility-scale solar power plants to Indonesia’s PJB Services under an agreement signed between the two on Tuesday, the US photovoltaic (PV) maker said in a statement.

"Indonesia has an increasingly urgent need for reliable, cost-effective energy resources,” said Won Park, Arizona-headquartered First Solar's Senior Manager of Business Development and Sales in Southeast Asia.

The two companies signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Tuesday the statement said but it did not give financial details and a timeline on when the power plant will be ready.

"Solar PV electricity can help Indonesia meet its fast-growing power needs while reducing its dependence on fossil fuels," Bernadus Sudarmanta, President of PJB Services, said in the same statement.
