Armageddon Energy and Tyco Electronics announced their partnership for a strategic investment and collaboration in order to step up the commercial release of Armageddon’s SolarClover solar energy system. The companies also signed a strategic supply agreement for the electrical connectors that will work with the SolarClover during the installation process.

“We are confident about the prospect for dramatic and sustained growth in the largely underdeveloped small-scale residential solar market,” said Randy Bahr, VP of alternative energy solutions for Tyco. “Tyco Electronics has the engineering expertise and worldwide manufacturing capabilities needed to support this emerging and growing market. We’re very excited to be working with an innovator like Armageddon Energy to deliver compelling products for the mainstream consumer solar power market.”

Armageddon’s SolarClover is a modular 1KW (AC) solar energy system that is designed for easy installation by nonspecialists, such as electricians, roofers, and general contractors. The company hopes that an easier installation process will fuel the solar residential market. The product is scheduled for release later this year.

Per the companies’ agreements, TE will help bring the SolarClover to the market and support with the safety and regulatory certifications and, together, Tyco Electronics and Armageddon will share information on customer requirements for the residential solar market and collaborate on the distribution to different customer sections.
