PVinsights: Price War Heats Up As Chinese Chase Hanwha Q-Cells

Solar panel price around the world extend the slump over the past few weeks amid simmering intensity over competition of global players and strong dollar. Recently, Hanwha Q-cell has been the dominant player in the price war in major solar markets US, EU and Japan. Particularly in the US, the solar panel price has deteriorated most noticeably amid fierce competition. Such attempts lead by Hanwha Q-cell also forces other major Asian module makers to slashing the prices as well, leading US solar panel price drastically lower and continue to renew the record low level. Meanwhile, solar panel prices in China and India are also trending downwards. In China, even as the demand is relatively solid, solar panel prices are dragged down by depreciation of RMB as well as strategic pricing in efforts to win project tenders. As for India, solar panel prices slump as following the downtrend of the rest of the world regardless of its solid demand growth.

Through Wind and Rain, Roof Tech Makes a Believer Out of Solarize Financial

Steven Petersen is project director of Solarize Financial, based just outside Charleston, South Carolina. When his business partner introduced him to Roof Tech products, he knew he had found a great solution for his residential customers. "Initially, I thought RT E Mount AIR® couldn't possibly be as strong as railed systems," he admits. "But the first time I used it, it became clear that E Mount AIR is far less intrusive on the roof, and doesn't compromise the integrity of the roof the way railed systems can." In the fall of 2016, Petersen had occasion to appreciate the real strength of E Mount AIR when a major meteorological event affected his region.
