San Francisco, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Suntech Power Holdings Co. Ltd. has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Ontario, Canada’s Pure energies to supply up to 17 megawatts (MW) of solar photovoltaic modules in 2010. The MOU, which also provides a framework for module supply from Suntech to Pure energies through 2011, is focused on bringing solar systems to Ontario’s rapidly growing residential solar market.
Pure energies will deploy Suntech’s panels for its unique offering to the Ontario residential market. Pure energies installs, leases and operates the solar systems for its customers. Pure energies’ offering is bolstered by the Ontario Power Authority’s (OPA) microFIT Program, designed to encourage the development of sub 10kW renewable energy projects across the province.
“Our agreement with Suntech is yet another win in establishing Pure energies’ brand name for the booming Ontario solar market,” said Ryan McCalley, Pure energies’ vice president and co-founder. “By securing Suntech’s high quality panels and reliable supply our customers can trust the quality and value they’re getting when they decide to take advantage of our unique offering.”
Pure energies will begin marketing Suntech panels immediately for installations beginning in 2010.
