Canadian Solar has announced a module supply agreement with Australia-based REDSET, a solar products distribution company serving a network of over 1,000 licensed installers across Australia.
Under the agreement, Canadian Solar will supply over 20MW of high-performance solar modules per annum to REDSET to power a range of commercial and residential installations.
REDSET has warehouses in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney and Townsville, offering local installers support from experienced solar power experts who have practical industry knowledge.
“Canadian Solar is proud to partner with REDSET, which has shown leadership in its support of the quality end of the solar energy market in Australia,” said Rod Seares, general manager of Canadian Solar Australia.
“REDSET has a reputation for excellent customer service and customer satisfaction. With each State and Territory setting their own feed-in tariffs and with different approaches to solar power legislation, it's important to work with a company that understands local market conditions.”
According to the Sustainable Energy Association of Australia, more than 858,000 homes in Australia are now equipped with solar PV panels, totalling almost 2 GW of installed capacity in solar PV.
REDSET managing director Ross Young said that Canadian Solar's innovative approach to product development and warranties made it an attractive partner.
“Canadian Solar is a Tier 1 solar energy supplier with a reputation for service and dependability,” Young said. “We have tested their products, visited their factories and been impressed with their quality, industry leading performance and reliability.
“Our customers will benefit from a compelling full service solar solution with a true 25-year insurance-backed guarantee.”
