Taiwan-based a-Si thin-film manufacturer, NexPower Technology has used three different channels to market in an effort to capture business from the burgeoning Japanese PV market. The company said, though did not breakout the quantities that it had shipped 10MW of modules to Japan in the first-half of 2012 to local distributors, EPC firms and PV project developers.
“A common use of NexPower modules by Japanese EPCs is to build what [are] called a mini solar farm, which is usually within 50kW and ground mounted,” noted Charles Chen, sales and marketing vice president of NexPower.
The company claimed that its expected pipeline in Japan this year could result in more than 1,000 rooftop installations using its thin-film modules.
