PROINSO opens new branch in South Africa

The new branch in South Africa is joining the network of international branches owned by this multinational firm supplying PV solar products.

PROINSO has 13 Qualified Installers in Africa – in Algeria, Senegal, Egypt, Nigeria, Kenya, Namibia, South Africa and Ivory Coast – who are members of the firm's International Network.

Company sources highlighted the importance of entering the PV solar energy market in South Africa with the support of local partner African Solar Power. The country expects to have about 8,000MW of installed power by 2020.
Besides Africa, in 2011 PROINSO began to increase business activity in emerging markets like Australia, Brazil, Mexico, India, South East Asia and Japan.

14 May 2013. PROINSO – a leading retailer of PV solar materials – has recently opened a new branch in Cape Town, South Africa, in strategic partnership with local firm African Solar Power. Thanks to this new branch, PROINSO, which has five Qualified Installers in South Africa who are members of its International Network, will be able to strengthen its presence in this solar PV market. The partnership with a local company is a strategic one, since African Solar Power has long experience in the supply and retail of PV systems.

At PROINSO they point at the importance of setting foot on South Africa with the support of African Solar Power, a firm that has been operating in the country for years and has knowledge of local regulations. The PV power industry is likely to have a brilliant future in South Africa, which is expected to have more than 8,000MW installed by 2020.' To this we should add that in vast areas of the country there are more than 2,500 daylight hours a year, and daily solar radiation amounts to 4.5 to 6.5kWh/m2 on average.

PROINSO is already familiar with African markets. 13 Qualified Installers are members of its International Network in Algeria, Egypt, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Namibia and South Africa as well.

PROINSO's new branch in South Africa adds to those the company has in Greece, Italy, USA, Great Britain, Spain, Canada, China, Australia, India, Brazil, Thailand and Japan.//
