ICP Solar Signs Supply Agreement with SCHOTT Solar Gmbh
2008 Sunsei® Panels To become Lighter and Deliver 25% more Power
Montreal, Canada.– ICP Solar Technologies Inc. (OTCBB: ICPR, FRANKFURT: K1U.F), a developer, manufacturer and marketer of solar products, announced today it has signed a multi-year agreement with SCHOTT Solar GmbH to use SCHOTT Solar’s thin film technology plates starting with the 2008 edition of its Sunsei® Product line. Headquartered in Alzenau, Germany, SCHOTT Solar GmbH is a leading manufacturer of wafers, cells and modules for photovoltaic generation of energy.
“Uniting the SCHOTT Solar thin film plate technology with our non-glass backed modules, which ICP Solar is pioneering for the recreational off-grid market, makes our panels lighter and more powerful,” said ICP Solar CEO and Chairman, Sass Peress. “As part of our strategy, we are continually trying to secure the best suppliers and components in order to create best-in-class consumer solar products. This agreement, with one of the largest thin-film makers in the world, comes on the heels of other such agreements which secure supply for our growing customer base.”
“We are constantly in touch with our customers and they are demanding more features and portability from our products,” said Laurent Lafite, Vice President Marketing and Global Strategy. “The addition of these plates, which contain no toxic materials, now allows us to make our 2008 Sunsei products better for the environment and SCHOTT’s thin film technology makes them lighter and more durable while at the same time delivering 25% more power. Reducing the weight of our panels also helps to improve the carbon footprint of customers who are installing them on RVs and boats, as well as reducing freight costs for our trade partners.”
