New at EWS: Premium solar modules from Astronergy
At Astronergy's production site in Frankfurt (Oder), premium crystalline solar modules at attractive prices have been manufactured for the German and European markets since 2007. The product range covers classic mono- and polycrystalline models of the PENTA series with an power output of up to 285 (mono) or 275 Watt-peak (Wp) (poly) as well as highly efficient PENTA+ premium modules with PERC technology and a power output of currently more than 300 Wp. The cells of all modules are equipped with five busbars. They are available from now from EWS in different designs (frame and backsheet colors).
Astronergy is part of the Chinese CHINT Group, one of the world's leading technology companies with extensive expertise in low-voltage technology. At Astronergy, one takes great pride in the state-of-the-art production facilities: Five fully automatic production lines with a total annual capacity of 350 MWp and a stringent quality control ensure a high product quality. This is reflected, amongst other things, in the low claims rate of less than 0.005 %.
These advantages have proved crucial for EWS’ company founder and Managing Director Kai Lippert: "We are very pleased to be able to offer these high-quality and reasonably priced solar modules ‘Made in Germany’ to our customers. Astronergy has the know-how and economic stability that we look for in our suppliers." For Sebastian Mäscher, Head of Sales at Astronergy for Germany, Austria and Switzerland, the cooperation with EWS is a win-win situation: "EWS is an important and reliable player in Germany with an equally strong position in the Scandinavian solar markets. Our cooperation will strengthen our market presence as our products will be loved by the experienced and demanding installers in the EWS partner network."
In order to learn more about Astronergy, the production as well as the product quality, the two partners invite interested EWS customers to an exclusive factory visit to Frankfurt (Oder) on 6 June 2018. The details and further information will be published shortly on the EWS website at www.photovoltaics.eu.
