Open Energy Corp. has signed a distribution agreement with Tri-Valley Wholesale and Petersen-Dean Roofing Systems, one of the largest residential and commercial roofing contractors in the U.S., to supply SolarSave PV Tiles on new homes across the country.
The agreement includes a minimum commitment to purchase Open Energy's SolarSave products, including tiles and balance-of-system equipment. Petersen-Dean Roofing joins Eagle Roofing as Open Energy's exclusive channel partners for its building-integrated SolarSave PV Tile products.
"After careful research into the market, we believe that solar electric systems can significantly reduce the energy costs and increase the property values of our clients," says Jim Petersen, CEO of Petersen-Dean." We believe that SolarSave Tiles integrated with standard cement tiles provide an elegant and functional solution for incorporating solar systems into tile roofed homes."
Open Energy will support Petersen-Dean's efforts with installation and service training, system design and engineering, solar rebate processing, and promotional materials. Open Energy Corp's supply arrangements with Suntech Power of China will help ensure that Petersen-Dean's volume requirements will be met, the company says.
