Global module manufacturer Yingli Green has signed an agreement with Australia and New Zealand electrical wholesalers and solar system designers L&H Solar + Solutions that is expected to extend the company's reach in the region.
Yingli’s PANDA and YGE series PV modules will be distributed via L&H’s 200-plus electrical wholesale outlets, as well as to over 30,000 electrical contractors and solar partners across Australia and New Zealand.
Liansheng Miao, chairman and CEO of Yingli Green Energy, said the partnership is “paving the way for further expansion in Australia and New Zealand”.
Daman Cole, commercial director of Yingli Australia said as Yingli and L&H both work towards improving quality standards in the solar industry the agreement is “a logical step”.
Yingli Green has more than 4GW of modules installed globally and L&H Solar + Solutions, a subsidy of L&H Group, designs and builds residential to utility-scale solar systems.
First Solar also recently announced construction of Australia’s largest solar farm, with 155MW of PV projects to be completed by January 2014.
