PAIRAN and ESEI Solar sign exclusive marketing and distribution agreement

Photovoltaic specialists PAIRAN and ESEI Solar are pleased to announce an exclusive joint venture to market and sell high-quality dual-axis trackers in Canada.

Göttingen, March 24, 2011 - Photovoltaic specialists PAIRAN and ESEI Solar are pleased to announce an exclusive joint venture for the Canadian market. As of Jan. 1, 2011 ESEI Solar will distribute PAIRAN tracking systems in Canada.

PAIRAN trackers are currently the only tracking systems available with full UL and CSA certification. Previously, these certifications were only available for individual components, but the PAIRAN SF tracking systems (ranging from SF-10 to SF-60) have now been certified for use as complete systems.

For marketing and distribution efforts in the United States and Canada, this important stepping stone will give PAIRAN systems "the best possible footing", according to Peter Fleitmann, Head of International Project Sales. "Without official safety approval, it is essentially impossible to get a product listed by American or Canadian dealers."

ESEI Solar and PAIRAN will broaden their cooperative marketing efforts and have agreed on a number of joint activities, such as the co-branding of ESEI and PAIRAN across all respective marketing activities, beginning with websites, monthly press releases submitted to edition houses with headlines such as "UL-listing for PAIRAN systems in the USA", "ESEI Solar distributes PAIRAN" and "PAIRAN SunControl now available with ESEI Soft's PlantMinder".

With a joint presence planned for a series of important international trade fairs, PAIRAN and ESEI Solar will both profit from the effects of this cooperative marketing undertaking, sharing both costs and know-how.

Featured Product



You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
