Silevo and Krannich Solar create distribution partnership


California's Silevo Inc. – a solar cell and PV module manufacturer – has teamed up with solar distributor Krannich Solar to ship the Silevo Triex high performance, high efficiency solar modules throughout Europe and the U.S.

The Silevo Triex module boasts an efficiency of 18.5% and a temperature coefficient of -0.27%/°C, making it an ideal module for solar arrays installed in challenging climates. The high efficiency is an improvement on the typical 14.5% efficiencies normal for conventional crystalline silicon c-Si modules, and its additional output power lowers balance of system (BOS) costs, significantly reducing the overall cost of the solar system.

Krannich Solar will be the chief distribution partner for the modules, utilizing its established channels in Europe and the U.S. to bring wholesale volumes to the markets.

"We are pleased to expand Silevo’s market presence with Krannich as they are a top-notch, respected industry leader in the wholesale and distribution segment," said Silevo's VP of sales and marketing, Aaron Thurlow. "Krannich understands the value and importance that Silevo products add to further developing the solar market. We look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship."

Kurt Krannich, owner of Krannich Solar, added: "After evaluating other solutions, we chose Silevo's Triex solar modules to complement our product portfolio because they offer our customers a multitude of values: high efficiency for space-constrained applications, high performance for greater kilowatt-hour production, and a strong value to maximize ROI."
