Solar Frontier has signed a distribution contract with Italy’s DW Europe to help expand its CIS solar module marketing and sales base in southern Europe. The agreement will enable Solar Frontier to establish a comprehensive distribution network and presence within the burgeoning European solar sector.
“Solar Frontier’s thin-film modules completely convinced us,” said DW’s European director Enrico Tonduti. “The efficiency and dependability we can expect from Solar Frontier give us great confidence, and our customers can have further ecological peace of mind as Solar Frontier’s panels are cadmium-free. Solar Frontier’s sales team has come to the Italian market well prepared as a knowledgeable and dependable consultant to our team.”
Solar Frontier has already established itself in the residential markets of Japan, Germany, and Australia, and the utility-scale markets in South-East Asia, Europe and the Middle East. And the company’s managing director, Wolfgang Lange, believes conquering the Mediterranean is the next logical step. “We have signed our first distribution agreement in Italy with DW Europe, and are all the more excited about Italian and Mediterranean markets despite feed-in tariff uncertainties. We look forward to DW Europe’s customers experiencing the advantages of CIS modules that are both efficient and ecological regardless of whether they will be rooftop installations for personal use or installed for commercial purposes,” said Lange.
Modules will be produced at Solar Frontier’s 1GW Japanese facility, which is the largest CIS factory in the world.
