Schott states it is off to a great start in the Japanese solar market

Judging from interest and attention received at the PV Expo trade fair in Tokyo, February 29 through March 2, Schott says that it is off to an admirable start in the Japanese solar market. Company officials note that its flagship product, the Perform Poly 245 solar module, garnered considerable interest in Tokyo and will see the company initially focus on the medium-sized market segment for solar installations on industrial rooftops.

Product shipment has already begun, with Schott noting that its polycrystalline glass-foil module carries a linear performance warranty of 25 years and guarantees high electricity yields for those who purchase the system.

“Experts expect Japan to rank among the six leading nations when it comes to the growth of photovoltaics in the years to come,” explains Swantje Oldoerp, head of sales for Asia at Schott Solar. “The new feed-in tariff in Japan will help to permanently bring about a change in energy,” added Airi Yukawa, president Schott Nippon K.K. “Here, we have just the right solutions to offer that deliver both high performance and stability.”
