aleo solar has shipped 400kW of solar modules in Israel in the first quarter of 2011, nearly surpassing its total sales in the country for both of the last two years. The majority of these modules have been installed on developments in rural communities by aleo's Israeli partner, Solenergy.
“We not only guarantee high-quality products, but also direct, personal contact – we provide comprehensive support to our specialist dealers covering everything from system layout to marketing,” Norbert Schlesiger, CSO of aleo solar, said.
In the last two years, aleo’s sales in Israel have totalled 500kW, and its Q1 figures offer further indication of the German firm’s increasing international presence. And this success has been replicated across the board, with a total of 25MW of PV systems installed in the Middle East state in 2010. These systems have benefitted from Israeli Government’s generous feed-in tariff rates – €0.38 per kWh for systems under 15kW and €0.30 per kWh for those over 15kW – and recent decision to remove the quantitative limit on the installation of PV systems with an output of up to 50kW.
