U.S.-headquartered Worldwide Energy and Manufacturing USA, Inc., via its Shanghai-based wholly-owned subsidiary Shanghai Intech Electro-Mechanical Products Co., Ltd., has announced that it has dispatched its first PV module shipment in the U.S. The company has also received UL certification for its solar module products, which was required in order for the company to sell modules in the U.S. market.
“This order validates our solar market research and proves there is a good demand for ‘AmeriSolar’ panels in the United States,” commented Worldwide Energy’s CEO Jimmy Wang. “With our approved UL Mark and technologically advanced solar modules, we expect this will be the first of many orders for us in the U.S. market. Based on our market analysis, we expect to generate millions of dollars in sales in the U.S. this year.”
Currently selling its mono- and polycrystalline modules under the ‘AmeriSolar’ name in eight countries, the company will add the U.S. to its geographical customer base that currently includes Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Portugal, France, Spain, Australia and South Korea.
“We continue to focus our sales and marketing efforts on increasing our customer base for our solar modules in Europe and other parts of the world, including North America. Our solar brand ‘AmeriSolar’ continues to gain recognition and widespread acceptance in the market place,” added Mr. Wang.
