Kinglong New Energy (KLNE) has chosen Trilight as its distributor and service partner for the UK and Ireland, reports Solar Power Portal. Under the agreement, which was formalised by Trilight’s senior management team on a recent trip to Beijing, the Glasgow-based lighting specialists will sell KLNE’s Sunteams inverters to wholesalers and installers within the UK’s burgeoning PV industry.
Trilight will deliver and service KLNE’s current range of G59 and G83 certified grid connected inverters – ranging from 1.5kW to 5kW – to customers across the UK and Ireland. Technical staff from Trilight have already been to Beijing for training at KLNE’s headquarters.
“We met with Trilight and found them to be very professional in all aspects of their business and in their negotiations with us,” KLNE sales director Wison Qi said. “They have excellent experience in the electrical business and this gave us confidence to appoint them as a distributor for us.
“The UK is a long way from China and it’s vital that both parties’ interests are aligned and that a clear plan for moving forward has been agreed. We found that we and Trilight were thinking alike right from the start. I am sure that our partnership will be a great success”
