aleo solar strenghtens market position in Greece and presents innovative solar solutions at the ECOTEC exhibition

new aleo solar High-Efficiency modules make even more efficient use of the sunlight

Oldenburg, Prenzlau, April 16, 2013. aleo solar AG has retained its strong market position in Greece and has been able to significantly expand its customer base in 2012. With a market share of about seven percent, aleo solar continues to be one of the leading suppliers of photovoltaic systems on the Greek market. The German company is known for its comprehensive services and high quality solar system components. In its capacity as "Great Sponsor" at the ECOTEC international environmental exhibition, aleo solar presents its High-Effiency solar modules, storage solutions as well as a practical two-in-one PVT hybrid module which combines photovoltaics and thermal heating within a single module.

The aleo high-quality PVT hybrid module is a solar solution which is ideally suited to the Greek market. The black PV module S_79 with its tailored thermal component from Fototherm on the back side combines the advantages of thermal and photovoltaic solar installations. "This solution is perfect for any Greek roof. It provides hot water and electricity at the same time and is therefore efficient and cost-saving for our customers", explains Thanasis Sakkas, Head of Sales for aleo solar in Greece and Cyprus. The thermal module ensures the optimal operating temperature of the photovoltaic cells by cooling them, thereby increasing electricity production. Potential applications for the PVT module include commercial facilities with high requirements for warm water, such as industrial processes, and hotels with high electricity requirements. In the residential market, the hybrid module is targeted at customers who do not want to compromise on aesthetics and look for a solution that provides electricity and heating for their home based on renewable energy sources.

The new aleo solar High-Efficiency modules make even more efficient use of the sunlight thanks to anti-reflection glass and highly transparent embedding film. The module's higher power output results in a reduction in material and installation costs. aleo solar will also show pure laminates at ECOTEC, which are used for aesthetic solutions in building integration. For storing the produced solar electricity, aleo solar offers a storage solution by the German system supplier E3DC that is suitable for single-family homes and small businesses. It includes high-efficiency lithium-ion batteries with a life expectancy of up to 20 years. They require very little space, are easy to install and operate fully automatically.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
