ISTANBUL - Upsolar, a leading provider of solar PV modules and services, today announced the signing of a 2.84 MWp contract in Turkey with Erikoğlu SunSystem, an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) leader with more than 2,000 systems deployed.


Erikoğlu SunSystem will install 3,548 Upsolar UP-M250P and 7,592 Upsolar UP-M260P modules in the coming months across three projects in the cities of Denizli and Afyon.

"Like Erikoğlu SunSystem, Upsolar has earned a stellar reputation for customer satisfaction," said A. Nuri Erikoğlu, Board Member of Erikoğlu SunSystem. "From its transparent bill of materials to its meticulous attention to quality control, the company was the clear choice to deliver the strong performance our customers have come to expect. We anticipate a smooth installation and exceptional results from this collaboration, and from those to come down the road."

Since entering Turkey in 2014, Upsolar has quickly emerged as a key driver for the country's solar energy development. Government officials are targeting 30 percent of Turkey's electricity production from renewable sources by 2023, with solar PV playing a large role in its long-term generation portfolio.

"Our rapid growth in Turkey can be attributed to Upsolar's nimble approach to entering promising new regions, supported by a network of dynamic production partners," said Esra Canpolat, Sales Manager for Upsolar Turkey. "To date, we've sold more than 32.2 MW of our high-quality modules into the market, surpassing our initial targets.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

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.
