European Distribution Partner of the Year: BayWa r.e. receives REC Award
BayWa r.e. supplies high-quality solar modules from REC to installers through its international trading business, while also using the modules itself for large scale projects. The award was made because of BayWa r.e.'s strong international growth and the high sales figures for REC modules in the past year.
