EcoEnergies, Inc. and PowerLight Corporation have announced that the two companies have entered into a strategic distribution agreement. EcoEnergies will provide PowerLight’s PowerGuard, which are insulating solar electric roof tiles for flat and low sloping roofs.SUNNYVALE, California, May 3, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] “This strategic alliance represents a clear ‘win-win’ for both EcoEnergies and PowerLight,” said Peter Carrie, President of EcoEnergies. “It’s an ideal partnership, especially because many EcoEnergies customers have flat roofs that are well-suited to PowerLight’s product. It makes good sense for EcoEnergies to offer PowerLight’s superior solar electric systems to its customers.” “PowerLight recently increased production schedules to meet the rapidly growing demand for on-site solar generation,” said Dan Shugar, President of PowerLight. “We’re committed to developing quality partnerships and look forward to furthering our relationship with EcoEnergies.” Last year, EcoEnergies completed a 220 kW installation for PowerLight near Fountain Valley in Southern California and is currently completing a project near San Jose. “EcoEnergies has always been keen on providing our potential customers with a range of technology and manufacturer options when choosing a Renewable Energy power system,” said EcoEnergies’ solar specialist Andy Black. “Now we can offer them even more choices.” PowerGuard, PowerLight’s flagship solar electric product, is ideal for flat roofs because it’s easy to install and does not require roof penetration The patented, lightweight photovoltaic (PV) roofing assembly delivers clean solar electricity to the building while protecting the roof from damaging effects of weather and UV radiation. Moreover, the insulation properties of PowerGuard reduce energy costs for heating and cooling, especially during hours of peak electrical demand.
