SolTech Energy and SVEA Solar enter a cooperation agreement

SolTech Energy has signed a cooperation agreement with SVEA Solar covering the sale and periodic installation of SolTech’s new building-integrated product ShingEl. The market for esthetic solar energy is in its embryonic stage, but nonetheless deemed to capture large market shares over the coming years.

SolTech Energy’s core strategy is to be an innovator, producer and supplier of unique, integrated solar energy solutions that fulfill several functions in the same product. SolTech ShingEl is just such a product with the private market as its target group, and therefore the need of a strong partner within sales and installation.  SVEA Solar sells and installs solar cells throughout the country and is one of the leading actors in the Swedish solar cell market.  

SolTech Energy’s CEO Frederic Telander comments:

  • In order to meet the ever increasing interest from private individuals and bostadsrättföreningar (roughly: Co-op apartment building associations) and similar interested parties, we can now direct these customers to SVEA Solar, which is a nation-wide solar energy installer.  As earlier announced, we have sealed a contract with Rexel – one of the world’s leading electric wholesalers. With this contract with Rexel, we secure distribution and the product support that solar energy requires, as well as a widespread launching of ShingEl to building contractors and real estate firms. Through our cooperation agreement with SVEA, we now have a complete distribution strategy for the Swedish market, and thereby, have become significantly more effective. SVEA Solar has, over a short expanse of time, built up an impressive company, and we feel safe in projecting that they will serve all ShingEl customers in an exemplary way.

SVEA Solar’s CEO Erik Martinson comments:

  • Esthetic and building-integrated solar energy is the future. Within 4 – 5 years it is our conviction that this form of solar energy will come to completely dominate the market. We have evaluated the few similar products found in the market and concluded that ShingEl is the best, and we are therefor very pleased that SolTech has signed this cooperation agreement with us.
