Evolution Solar introduces Chinese Konca Solar's PV panels to USA
(ADPnews) - Dec 16, 2010 - US solar energy firm Evolution Solar Corp (PINK:EVSO), or EVSO, today said it imported for the first time photovoltaic (PV) panels from Chinese Konca Solar Cell Co this week.
EVSO did not announce other details on the deal.
The company will market the 230-watt Konca Solar Cell panels to residential and commercial projects in several US states, expecting a "strong market" for them in the coming year.
"Once these new panels hit the marketplace, we anticipate demand for Konca products rising dramatically," EVSO's president, Robert Hines, said.
According to a report on the solar PV industry trends in 2011 released recently by DC Energy Insights, new solar panel installations in North America are expected to double, reaching more than 2 GW of installed capacity.
Konca Solar is a manufacturer of PV products. Since 2005 it has been producing solar grade wafers with an annual capacity of some 300 MW.
