GCL System Integration Technology (GCL-SI), a subsidiary energy firm GCL, has signed an agreement for DMSolar to distribute its solar modules and other components to the Mexican market.
Guadalajara-based solar equipment distributor DMSolar, which currently partners local installers on residential and commercial projects, will supply GCL-P6/60 and GCL-P6/72 modules, but financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
GCL-SI is targeting projects from Mexico's utility-scale auctions as well as projects with potential private PPAs, following two successful large-scale renewables auctions last year.
Jose Jove, vice president of sales for GCL-SI Latin America, said: “Regulation in Mexico has improved dramatically in [the] past few months, both for utility-scale projects with the approval of the Energy Reform and for distributed generation with the update on the rules; net metering and net billing are now together in the mix."
The firm is also "consolidating relationships" regarding distributed generation, added Jove.
Yusef Kanchi, sales director of DMSolar, said: "We selected GCL-SI for several reasons: reliable product quality, strong business ethics, proven financial stability and wide experience in solar industry. We are glad to bring quality products and professional companies to the Mexican market."
