German PV integrator, GeckoLogic GmbH, has placed orders with Solyndra worth approximately $250 million that runs through 2012. Solyndra’s total contractual backlog, which includes this new deal, now stands at approximately $1.2 billion according to the company.
“We are very pleased to announce this relationship with GeckoLogic. Their European expertise and emerging North American capabilities should enable exceptional growth in the fastest growing markets for commercial scale solar,” said Solyndra Founder and CEO Chris Gronet. “We expect that the Solyndra system’s ease and speed of installation can enable GeckoLogic crews to annually outfit significantly more commercial rooftops with solar.”
“Solyndra’s light system weight and low wind loading enables our firm to install solar on a large number of rooftops that otherwise could not support traditional PV systems,” said Steve Gyoerffy, CEO and co-founder of GeckoLogic. “Additionally, the non-penetrating mounting system gives my customers piece of mind that the roof will never leak.”
The modules will be manufactured at Solyndra’s facilities in Fremont and Milpitas, California.
