Solar Frontier has entered into a distribution agreement with Mainstream Energy. The deal will see Mainstream sell and install 5MW of Solar Frontier’s CIS modules beginning in the fourth quarter of 2011. The CIS thin-film modules in the distribution agreement will be manufactured at Solar Frontier’s CIS factory in Miyazaki, Japan. Solar Frontier noted that the agreement would increase its presence throughout the North American market.
“Mainstream Energy’s mission is to bring solar to the mainstream by making solar easy and affordable to a wide range of customers, with excellent quality, service and cost,” said Ethan Miller, VP of operations for Mainstream Energy. “Solar Frontier will enhance our ability to deliver on this promise with Solar Frontier’s exceptionally high-quality economical and ecological CIS modules. These modules also happen to be among the most aesthetically pleasing, thanks to their all-black appearance.”
