Tianwei SolarFilms has signed a contract to supply 1.2MW of silicon thin-film modules to Sunvalley Solar for its future projects in southeastern California. The contract will not only help Sunvalley complete the US$5 million worth of installations it has lined up in Palm Springs, but also allow TianWei to increase its presence in the U.S. market.
Dr. James Zhang, president and CEO of Sunvalley, said, “Sunvalley Solar had a great achievement in supporting farmers in Palm Desert area to reduce their utility cost with solar energy. By now, we've already signed US$5-million contracts with farms in Palm Desert area. It is extremely important that we secured the thin-film solar panels supplying with our strategic partner Tianwei SolarFilms, with best price and payment term, plus their full technical support and services.”
“A key part of Tianwei SolarFilms' strategy is to provide high-quality solar modules at superior pricing and terms for Sunvalley Solar, our strategic partner in USA, not only for its installation projects covered in this contract, but also for its installer partners through Sunvalley's distribution channels. This contract as well as other agreements under discussion now will serve as the foundation for the strategic relationship between Tianwei SolarFilms and Sunvalley Solar,” added Lan Tao, vice president of Tianwei SolarFilms.
