ReneSola and SunEnergy1 to Close 2013 with 63MW Worth of Projects in North Carolina Tier 1 Module Supplier and Leading EPC Team-up to Lead NC Solar Ma
Wednesday, Dec 04, 2013ReneSola Ltd ("ReneSola") (NYSE: SOL), a leading brand and technology provider of solar photovoltaic ("PV") products, today announced its final expected 2013 module deliveries to SunEnergy1, one of North Carolina's leading solar engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) firms. By the end of the year, SunEnergy1 will complete 63MW worth of projects consisting of more than 210,000 ReneSola Virtus II high efficiency 300W and 305W 72-cell polycrystalline PV modules.
"SunEnergy1 ordered a significant amount of product from ReneSola during our first year working together, due to their high level of confidence in our brand and technology. Our cooperation with SunEnergy1 was a major driver of growth of our U.S. shipments in 2013, after entering the market only two years ago. SunEnergy1's orders will account for a substantial share of our total U.S. deliveries this year, as a number of our U.S. wins in 2013 will be shipped after year-end," said Kevin Chen, president of ReneSola America.
"This amount of product, ordered by a new customer over the course of a year, should send a clear message to the domestic PV industry that ReneSola provides high-quality, reliable and top performing products. This is underscored by SunEnergy1's reputation as a true force to be reckoned with in utility scale installations in the Southeast . SunEnergy 1 has become the go-to EPC firm for major PV project developers in the Southeast, and is known for meeting tight construction deadlines and overcoming complicated site challenges," continued Kevin Chen.
"Our business model requires our module supplier to possess nimble logistical capabilities and domestically held inventory, and to consistently provide top quality durable modules," said Kenny Habul, CEO of SunEnergy1. "ReneSola has gone above and beyond our expectations, proving their ability to satisfy our high requirements, resulting in what we expect will be a long-term relationship with one of the nation's leading PV module suppliers. We've worked with a number of other module suppliers in the past, but are more confident dealing with ReneSola due to the high level of service and product quality they deliver."
