Gehrlicher Solar is continuing its international expansion with its new subsidiary based in the United Kingdom. Located in Birmingham, England, Gehrlicher Solar UK will focus on the sale of photovoltaic components throughout the UK, which was previously done with the cooperation of selected partners in Great Britain. Jens Schnoor, head of the components and systems division, will act as managing director for the new company.

"The British market is of particular interest to us: the feed-in tariffs are attractive, there are a number of large open spaces and the hours of sunshine are comparable to Germany. We will have completed the first large-scale open space projects by the middle of this year and are also planning to significantly expand our distribution operations", stated Schnoor.
