A long-standing user of Uni-Solar a-Si thin film laminates in the U.S., Advanced Green Technologies (AGT), has signed a distribution agreement with CIGS thin film producer, Solyndra. The two technologies compete in the commercial rooftop markets. ECD produces the Uni-Solar branded products.
“Advanced Green Technologies has built our reputation by providing building-integrated renewable energy products and working through the value chain to create efficiency that offers our customers the highest returns from renewable sources,” said Michael Kornahrens, president of Advanced Green Technologies. “Solyndra’s rooftop solar energy systems are a great solution that offers our customers the benefits of low levelized costs of electricity, especially when coupled with energy saving cool roofs.”
Solyndra’s founder and CEO, Chris Gronet, noted that gaining AGT as a distributor was a great addition to its North America distribution network.
Further contract details were not disclosed and Solyndra declined to comment based on it being in the quiet period before its expected IPO. AGT was not available to comment at the time that enquiries were made.
