S.A.G. Solarstrom and Yingli enter into supply agreement


Much of the deal comprises Yingli Green Energy’s Panda modules, which have a reported efficiency of up to 16.2 percent. S.A.G. says the capacity now agreed on is planned for projects in the European countries in which it operates. It also underscores the company's planned further growth.

"The now secured volume of high-quality modules, in addition to the quota that we negotiate with other suppliers, is an important step for us towards implementing our planned growth over the next few years," commented Dr. Karl Kuhlmann, CEO of S.A.G. Solarstrom.

S.A.G has been working together with Yingli as a system partner since 2005.
