eIQ Energy and Signet Solar have agreed to a bundling agreement to help its customers streamline the building of a solar energy installation. The agreement calls for the use of Signet’s thin-film solar modules and eIQ’s parallel solar technology to be marketed by both companies. One SKU number for both products will make ordering more convenient for all customers.
“These are products that go hand-in-hand,” commented Dr. Keshav Prasad, Signet Solar’s vice president of business development. “We want to provide value up and down the solar energy chain, and for our customers, this takes the guesswork out of working with different parts—we’ve done the background work.”
The parallel solar method potentially provides a 5-10% decrease in balance-of-system costs by lowering the need for junction boxes, custom cabling and other hardware. Orders for the bundle are being taken now for delivery in Q1 of 2010.
