QSolar has received an order for 1,250 of its panels from Italian installation company Solexia. A down payment of 10% has been made by Solexia, which has also opened a letter of credit for the balance of the US$506,250 purchase price.
The 250W panels will be used to populate the roof installation on the roof of a large chemical factory in Modena, Italy.
“This represents one of the harshest possible environments QSolar has had to deal with because the client factory emits highly corrosive chemical fumes that must be accounted for in the design and maintenance of the panels,” QSolar’s president and CEO Andreas Tapakoudes said. “The selection of our panels for this demanding application represents a further vote of confidence in the superior performance and durability characteristics of our technology.”
