“In the south-east of France there is the largest number of solar plants, especially in the Rhône-Alpes region. Lyon has also become a magnet for the solar industry. Roughly half of all French PV installation companies have their headquarters in this region”, said Didier Jeannelle, head of Sputnik’s French subsidiary.

“The French solar market is booming and we can expect stable growth at least until 2012. Future growth depends on future legislation. In the market for systems operated by homeowners Sputnik is already No. 2 in France. In future we will also increase our share of the central inverter market for medium-sized and large-scale plants,” continued Jeannelle.  

In order to achieve this goal, Sputnik Engineering plans to expand its partner network to cover the market for medium-sized and large-scale plants and sales in French overseas territories.
