Schletter, a manufacturer of solar mounting systems, has been awarded a 100 MW (installed PV capacity) supply agreement with Strata Solar, an installer and service provider of utility, commercial and residential PV systems. The partnership agreement is expected to be completed this year.

In mid-2012, Schletter announced plans to triple its manufacturing capacity with the addition of a facility in the Eastern U.S. Since this announcement, the factory has become nearly production ready in its Shelby, N.C., manufacturing plant.

The combination of Schletter's gigawatt output capacity and the proximity to several key Strata Solar proposed installation sites were key factors in Strata's selection decision, the companies note.
