Ontario-based PV firm Eclipsall Energy has signed a module supply deal with distributor Honeybee Solar as well as an agreement with inverter company Sustainable Energy to design, package, and market “solar power kits” for the province and the rest of the North American market.
The company has also created Eclipsall Financial Services, which offers equity and debt financing program for Ontario solar projects through a joint venture with Canada Green ESCO.
The memorandum of understanding with Sustainable Energy calls for the production of at least 10MW of solar kits based on a combination of Eclipsall’s modules and the Sunergy inverter, beginning in Q3 2011. The partnership will allow both companies to bundle the inverters and panels directly into turnkey packages for the installer community in Ontario, especially those serving the under 10kW micro-FIT market.
Eclipsall announced last month that it had secured a 120,000 sq ft facility in Toronto, which it is converting into 64MW of manufacturing lines for 60- and 72-cell crystalline-silicon modules. Meyer Burger unit 3S Modultec and Rimas Assembly are the key equipment providers. Production is scheduled to begin during the second quarter.
