SolarMax, a Swiss based global pure-play photovoltaic (PV) inverter company with U.S. headquarters in Atlanta, GA, and more than 20 years of PV inverter experience, welcomes Mark Haug, utility sales manager, to its growing U.S. team.


"SolarMax has a stellar reputation in the market for delivering high quality products and excellent customer care," said Mark Haug, utility sales manager, SolarMax. "I wanted to part of organization with such a strong tradition and I look forward to educating large-scale power plants on how they can better compete with conventional power plants."

Haug will be responsible for SolarMax's utility-scale product sales and marketing efforts of the RX A series inverters, specifically developed for large-scale PV power plant requirements. The RX A's high efficiency, availability and serviceability deliver lower lifetime costs, enabling large-scale solar power plants to produce power at competitive prices.

Since 1995, Haug is a power electronic/PV industry when he started with Omnion Power Engineering, which developed the first grid-tied transformerless inverters in the US. Haug comes to SolarMax from Danfoss Solar Inverters, where he served as director of strategic sales and marketing. There, he was responsible for selling Danfoss' utility-scale applications and bringing the company's line of PV string inverters to the U.S. market. Prior to Danfoss, Haug was at The Switch, where he was responsible for PV inverter, PMG generator and full power converter sales. Before The Switch, Haug was at Magnetek, Inc., where he drove worldwide sales and marketing activities for the company's Renewable Energy Division. Other previous positions include Xantrex, Trace Technologies, AEG, Gettys, and Zerand.

"SolarMax continues to expand its U.S. team to support growing sales demands, particular in the utility-scale market," said Alan Beale, general manager, SolarMax USA, Inc "In April we were joined by Walter Marusak and now we're thrilled to have Mark Haug, an industry veteran with nearly 20 years of experience, on board as a strategic asset."

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
