06:46 EDTFSLRFirst Solar downgraded to Underperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital
RBC Capital downgraded First Solar to Underperform and lowered its price target on the stock to $34 from $54. The firm believes First Solar's cost advantage over C-Si module producers is diminishing and that its earnings power is significantly below previous guidance and consensus. RBC Capital rolled out 2016 estimates of $1.37/$3.4B, versus consensus of $3.48/$4.1B and guidance of $3.50-$5.00/$3.8B-$4.5B. The firm sees limited upside to its estimates given First Solar's high exposure to utility scale projects and long-lead time and development cycles, combined with lower ASPs and gross margins to third-party module estimates.

Southern Company (SO) subsidiary Southern Power acquired the 103-megawatt Butler solar facility from Community Energy in Georgia. The project, which was initially developed by Community Energy was selected by Southern Company subsidiary Georgia Power in a competitive process through the nationally recognized Georgia Power Advanced Solar Initiative. The facility, which will be located on approximately 1,070 acres in Taylor County, Georgia, is expected to enter commercial operation in the fourth quarter of 2016. Construction is slated to begin in September 2015, with First Solar (FSLR) managing the building, operations and maintenance of the facility. The Butler solar facility is expected to consist of more than 1 million of First Solar's thin-film photovoltaic solar modules mounted on single-axis tracking tables. The electricity and associated renewable energy credits generated by the facility will be sold under a 30-year power purchase agreement with Georgia Power, which will have the option to keep or sell the RECs, for the benefit of its customers or renewable energy programs.
