ANTARIS SOLAR gains ground in UK domestic solar PV market

Slough, October 2014. Increasing numbers of consumers are turning to ANTARIS SOLAR PV modules for their roof top solar systems, reports UK Country Manager Andrew Moore. Sales of ANTARIS SOLAR modules continue to rise as end-users look for quality and a dependable warranty to ensure they benefit fully from the government’s 20 years feed-in tariff.
ANTARIS SOLAR, PV specialist with headquarters in Germany, has particularly seen exceptional installation growth and record sales from Glasgow based Solar Electricity Systems and Belfast based Blue Build Energy, both companies having secured exclusivity to sell ANTARIS SOLAR modules in their relative countries.

A combination of a quality German brand, long term manufacturer support and longer warranty has particularly caught the eye of end-user buyers wanting to ensure the long term security of returns from their investment in solar energy.
ANTARIS SOLAR’s all-black monocrystalline module has proved particularly popular with installers and consumers alike, due to its performance and agreeable look on residential roof-tops. ANTARIS SOLAR was one of the first companies to introduce the all-black module to the UK market some years ago.
After four years of consistent growth in the UK and with fewer German solar brands to choose from, Andrew Moore expects to see ANTARIS SOLAR take further market share in the coming months.

Blue Build Energy will now include ANTARIS SOLAR PV modules in its offering to wholesalers and individual customers in Northern Ireland.

Blue Build Energy has already started to promote ANTARIS SOLAR’s solar panels and is running a competition in the Belfast Telegraph. The lucky winner will get a state-of-the-art roof-mounted solar system worth £11,670.

Gavin Logan, Blue Build Energy’s Managing Director, said: “Blue Build Energy are delighted to be the sole distributor of Antaris Solar PV panels in both northern and southern Ireland. We look forward to a long, mutually beneficial partnership.”

Ewan Melvin, Blue Build Energy’s Managing Director, said: “What attracted us to Antaris was their market leading guarantee of 30 years on performance and 12 years for labour and parts. Antaris also only use modules made from A-grade cells where other companies would use panels from B- or C-grade cells. Our customers are making a long term investment and we want to give them the best quality available on the market. In an unstable economic world, it is great to work with an extremely strong German company who have cash reserves should there be a requirement to replace any panels.”

He will explore the real questions that should be asked by consumers and investors alike before choosing a PV module supplier. The presentation is of particular interest to installers, developers, manufacturers and Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) advisers.
