Upsolar has announced its latest move in the emerging Balkan solar market. The company partnered with Plan-net Solar, a leading provider of construction services, to install a 1.2 MW rooftop PVsystem in Slovenia - the company's largest system in the country to date.
Plan-net Solar, the exclusive Upsolar distributor in Slovenia, recently completed the project's 783-kW first phase; the entire system is scheduled for completion in the second half of 2012.
Composed of 230Wp polycrystalline modules with positive tolerance, this project is a major proof point for Upsolar's strategic movement in the up-and-coming Balkan market. The company's presence in the region also includes an office in Athens, Greece, established in 2011.
"Upsolar's market flexibility and knowledge of global developments is vital to broadening our customer network. With teams in place across Europe, we are able to maintain growth in major markets while simultaneously exploring opportunities for expansion in developing areas," said Enrico Carniato, Europe Sales Director for Upsolar.
"By partnering with a trusted name like Plan-net Solar to bring our quality modules to Slovenia, we can assure local customers of a secure, long-term solar investment."
European customers also benefit from Upsolar's "Made in EU" certified polycrystalline modules, produced with locally sourced components. The company achieved this distinction in accordance with the Institute of Industrial Certification for Mechanics (ICIM).
"Our collaboration with Upsolar is a strong asset in our mission to expand solar implementation in Slovenia," said Marko Femc, General Manager of Plan-net Solar.
"The company's product variety, including modules equipped with power optimizer technology and unique framing options, is especially attractive to customers in this region. We're confident our joint efforts will enhance the solar experience for our customer base and help tofacilitate increased adoption of renewable energy across the greater Balkanregion."
