aleo once and for always: Ferragamo counts on the German module manufacturer

aleo solar AG has recorded a high number of repeat-orders in Italy

Oldenburg, Prenzlau, 6 February 2012. aleo solar AG [ISIN: DE000A0JM634] has recorded a high number of repeat-orders in Italy: aleo modules are often re-ordered to expand solar systems or in the case of new projects on the roofs of both private homes and companies as well as on other appropriate surfaces. The Ferragamo family is one of the many satisfied managers of an aleo solar system:


At the end of 2011, Mr. Salvatore Ferragamo was at Il Borro, near the town of Loro Ciuffenna (AR), as the photovoltaic plants on the "Il Borro" farm owned by the Ferragamo family were inaugurated. The plants had been installed by Energy Toscana Servizi . There are two main systems: one has a production capacity of 365 kW and the other has 999.84 kW. They have been installed on an industrial shed in Loro Ciuffenna (AR) and on land belonging to the farm between the towns of Terranuova Bracciolini and Laterina (AR). Earlier, other 20 kW systems had already been installed on structures and buildings owned by the farm. Altogether, about 6,000 aleo S_18 and S_19 modules were used in the installations.

Mr. Salvatore Ferragamo, as representative of the company Il Borro Srl, is highly satisfied with the work performed by Energy Toscana Servizi, a company with head office in Cavriglia (AR), which has operated exclusively in the renewable energy sector since 2007. The collaboration continues with the construction of other important photovoltaic plants.

Giovanni Buogo, international sales manager of aleo solar AG, explains the high customer satisfaction level by the fact that aleo solar is one of the few module producers with its own distribution network which not only offers product quality but also verification of the installation: "High quality modules and installation by specialist personnel are the cornerstones of our success. The solar plant managers who choose aleo modules are playing it safe when it comes to an installation." Thanks to the aleo network of specialist dealers, aleo modules are installed by expert professionals. Energy Toscana Servizi is a "Gold Member" of the aleo power network.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
