Edmonton, Alberta August 29, 2012 – 2012 marks the 10th anniversary for Conergy's Canadian operation. Conergy AG, headquartered in Hamburg, Germany, entered the Canadian market through its acquisition of ETI Solar whose operations in Canada date back to 2002. The team at Conergy Canada has been privileged to support the continued growth of the Canadian PV industry over these last 10 years, helping it grow from a boutique off-grid market to the diverse solar market place it is today.
Beyond Conergy's on-going focus and commitment to customer service the company has pioneered some important project and manufacturing milestones in Canada. Conergy provided equipment and engineering support to the very first project connected under the FIT program and was one of the first companies to offer its products to meet the domestic content requirements of the Ontario FIT program.
The company released Ontario-made versions of its SunTop and SolarGiant mounting systems in November of 2009. It then brought the Conergy ON solar modules to market in May 2011 and in July Conergy introduced its new industry-leading low ballast mounting system, SolarFamulus Air. This new product will also be produced in in Ontario. Conergy continues to show its industry leadership in the Canadian market.
"We are proud of the work that we have completed together with our customers and partners over the last ten years and we look forward to continuing to support the growth of this market over the decades to come" said Jared Donald, Conergy Canada's President. "The solar market in Canada is one that is ever changing and companies like ours are successful here because we continue to innovate to ensure that we can provide solutions that help our partners' businesses."
