DEGERenergie and Solar Inverters Pty Ltd. realize showcase project in Australia

Horb am Neckar, Germany, 18 May 2011. In Solar Inverters Pty Ltd., DEGERenergie has found a new distribution partner for Australia. Together, the partner companies are currently establishing a showcase project in New South Wales.

With immediate effect, the Australian company Solar Inverters Pty Ltd., a renowned wholesaler of photovoltaic components and primary distributor of "Power One" inverters in Australia, is an authorized DEGERenergie distributor. Solar Inverters' current objective is to establish a new business field with DEGERenergie's solar tracking systems. As the first step towards this objective, the partner companies cooperate on a showcase project in Urunga, New South Wales, where DEGERenergie's systems are presented live. For the "showcase", six type 5000HD DEGERtraker systems are being installed. For this project, Solar Inverters is also DEGERenergie's installation partner and acts as the operator of the small solar park. For comparison purposes, a rigid system is installed in close proximity.

According to Christopher Seng, area sales manager of DEGERenergie and responsible for sales in Australia, the current feed-in policies of the provincial government offer targeted subsidies for smaller projects with a yield of between 10 and 30 kWp. This way, individual projects equipped with two to six 5000HD DEGERtraker systems are especially economically attractive. So far, DEGERenergie has installed about 40 solar tracking systems of this type in Australia.

Peter Bulanyi, CEO of Solar Inverters: "After careful consideration of the offer in comparison with offers from competitors worldwide, we are convinced that the tracking systems of DEGERenergie are at the cutting edge of technological development. With the unique MLD technology, private households, just like solar park operators, can improve their energy yield by up to 45 percent compared to rigid solar modules. According to our research, no other manufacturer can match that - not to mention the level of reliability and technical superiority of DEGERenergie systems."

DEGERenergie was founded in 1999 by Artur Deger and today is the world market leader in solar tracking systems. Worldwide, more than 35,000 DEGERenergie systems are installed in over 40 countries. The company is represented in Spain, Greece and North America with its own subsidiaries and cooperates with local distribution and service partners in many countries across the world. The patented DEGERenergie Maximum Light Detection (MLD) technology makes it possible to improve the energy yield of solar power plants by up to 45 percent compared to rigid systems.
