Solar Topps, a solar integrator in Arizona, and Schott Solar have entered into a new solar panel supply agreement. The agreement will see Schott’s solar panels used in future Solar Topps commercial solar power installations, which range from 30kW to 200kW. The solar installations will be based in various cities and business in Arizona including car dealerships, hotels and shopping centers in Tucson, Nogales, Yuma, Tempe and Phoenix.
“Arizona building owners are becoming more and more aware that solar not only saves them money, but will give their building/business a serious competitive edge over their competitors for years to come because they will be generating electricity at 2011 prices while the competition will see their electric rates go up by five percent every year,” said Neal Uppal, Solar Topps' president.
“To make it easy for commercial customers to get a hassle free quote, we built a website that allows Arizona commercial building owners or their accountants to enter in their last 12 months’ worth of electricity bills. The site automatically generates a solar lease vs. solar purchase quote and emails it to the company in less than 24 hours. No sales people are involved until you are ready to sign a contract,” said Robert Hoskins, Solar Topps' director of marketing.
Solar Topps’ has a monthly run-rate that is steadily advancing to 300kW per month, which, the company states, puts it on track to install 4MW by the end of the year. Financial details for the supply deal were not released.
