Sovello High-Performance Solar Modules to be Made in Ontario

Signs Distribution Partnership with AS Solar Inc.

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 6, 2010) - Sovello of Germany, one of the world's largest fully integrated manufacturers of solar modules, is pleased to announce it is launching its Project Pro Module made in the province of Ontario. Production in Q1 of 2011 will be in limited quantities, with up to 2 megawatts per month scheduled the rest of the year.

The German-engineered modules Sovello has designed specifically for the Canadian market, combined with Canadian manufacturing standards, will bring welcome relief to the dynamic solar PV market in Ontario. The province's domestic content requirements for solar projects, combined with soaring demand for solar systems, has created a shortage of quality products that meet Ontario requirements.

In Ontario, Sovello is partnering with AS Solar Inc., of Mt. Albert, Ont., to be the anchor distributor of its Ontario-made modules. AS Solar Inc. is one of Canada's leading distributors of complete solar PV systems for residential and commercial markets. The company's multiple warehousing and logistics facilities will support timely supply of in-demand products. AS Solar also provides extensive product training and support to its rapidly growing network of dealers and project developers.  

"We identified Ontario as one of most dynamic renewable energy markets in North America, and we are pleased to participate with our value proposition, creation of jobs and contribution to Ontario's green economy," says Jan Dressel, Managing Director of Sovello Canada

"AS Solar is excited to team up with Sovello as the anchor distributor of their 'Made in Ontario' solar panels. This quality product delivers high yields that will result in strong ROIs and benefits to the environment for more than 20 years," says Ian Karleff, Managing Director of AS Solar Inc.

Well-established in the European solar energy market, Sovello has produced millions of modules, all backed by rigorous German engineering standards. Intensive research and development goes into their state-of-the-art, fully integrated production, from wafer to cell and the complete solar module assembly.
