Akeena Solar Inc., doing business as Westinghouse Solar Inc., plans to expand its distribution business to include sales in California. To implement this distribution expansion, the company will discontinue its solar panel installation business in the state, focusing exclusively on its manufacturing and distribution business.
The company says this change will position the company to sell its Westinghouse Solar systems directly to dealers in California for the first time.
‘Expanding our channels to include authorized dealers in California will accelerate the growth of our distribution business,’ says Barry Cinnamon, CEO of Westinghouse Solar. ‘California is the largest state in the country for solar products, accounting for approximately 50 percent of the U.S. market.’
