VISTA, CA, Nov. 2, 2011 /CNW/ - In response to the growing demand from
the United States and Latin America for Innotech Solar panels, Innotech
Solar (ITS) has established Innotech Solar U.S.A., a sales entity in
"With the decreasing costs of solar systems, we are increasing our focus
on markets with a lot of sunshine, soaring electricity prices and high
purchasing power," stated Robert Händel, CSO at Innotech Solar Group.
The feedback on ITS panels that have been installed in several states
across the U.S. has been positive, and a joint research project with
the University of California, San Diego, completed earlier this year,
showed excellent results regarding the efficiency of ITS panels.
Innotech Solar already maintains a solid presence in Europe and China,
so the U.S. is the next natural key-growth market for the company. In
Europe Innotech Solar has two cell processing facilities, in Norway and
Germany, with a capacity of more than 160 MW. Furthermore it is one of
the few companies that has extended not only purchasing but also sales
activities into Asia. With offices in Shanghai and Hong Kong Innotech
Solar supplies customers in over five provinces in China.
"The location in Southern California not only gives us access to the
largest single market in the U.S., but also to the fast-growing Mexican
and Latin American markets," Robert Händel explained.
"I joined Innotech Solar because of its exceptional and competitive
products, as well as the flexibility and technical know-how of the
team," said Georg Eversheim, Managing Director of Innotech Solar
U.S.A., who is supported by a staff of five. Georg Eversheim also
pointed out that "Innotech Solar puts effort into controlling
manufacturing costs; that will allow Innotech Solar to be cost
In addition to offering standard modules, ITS also manufactures small
modules in the range of 1.5 Wp to 135 Wp and custom-made panels for
special applications such as solar streetlights and parking structures.
The first installations totaling 50kW of Innotech Solar modules went
into operation last week in Southern California.
"We are trying to do the right thing to provide the best products for
our partners," said Georg Eversheim.
