Solar deal to increase PV affordability

Yingli Green Energy Australia, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the world’s largest vertically integrated photovoltaic (PV) module manufacturer, has entered into a distribution agreement with Australian solar supply and installation company Energy Matters.

Energy Matters will supply and install Yingli Solar’s monocrystalline PANDA Series modules and multicrystalline YGE Series modules to homes and businesses. It will also distribute Yingli Solar modules to solar installers through its wholesale distribution arm, Apollo Energy.

Yingli Solar Australia New Zealand and the Pacific managing director Daman Cole said the partnership is built on a shared focus on delivering high standards of both product and installation services to Australian consumers and businesses.

“There is incredible synergy between Yingli Solar and Energy Matters, and this partnership was a natural progression as both companies continue to make solar energy more accessible for consumers and businesses,” he said.

Energy Matters chief executive officer Jeremy Rich said solar power is becoming an increasingly affordable alternative for consumers and businesses who are looking to reduce energy costs in a sustainable way.

“Local businesses in particular are increasingly embracing solar energy as a way to stay competitive and we look forward to partnering with Yingli Solar to deliver sophisticated commercial installations across Australia,”
he said.
