Akeena Solar Inc., a designer and installer of solar power systems, says its Andalay solar panel technology will be distributed in Europe, Japan and Australia under a license agreement with Suntech Power Holdings Co. Ltd.
The terms of the licensing agreement authorize Suntech to commence the distribution of Andalay this month. The license complements Suntech's previous agreement to manufacture Andalay solar panels, the companies say.
‘Andalay improves on conventional solar panels by including built-in wiring, grounding and racking designed to provide maximum rooftop performance for consumers while minimizing installation costs for solar system installers,’ comments Barry Cinnamon, Akeena's CEO.
‘Akeena's new Andalay technology will be a valuable addition to our growing portfolio of solar products and will help keep Suntech on the leading edge of solar technology innovation,’ adds Len May, Suntech's managing director of BIPV products.
