circa 1,050,000 kWh. The customer is contractually committed to buying all the electricity the instillation produces over the span of 20 years. Over this same period, ASRE receives subsidies from Chinese authorities based on every kilowatt-hour (kWh) delivered to the customer. Investment in the installation, which continues to be owned by ASRE, amounts to approximately 5.9 MSEK. Plans call for the start of the instillation’s construction to take place during the 1st quarter of 2019.
CEO Stefan Ölander comments:
”We see a continuation of good possibilities for further expansion in China – and there is no sign of a prevailing shortage of sales possibilities – quite the contrary, we are holding back in order to match sales against financing. Focus now rests on ensuring the financing necessary to meet the goal set for 2019, and we are examining the possibility of issuing, via our subsidiary ASAB, bonds directed toward a more professional investor faction on the Nordic Bond Market.”

Investment in China
SolTech’s investment in China is carried out by Advanced SolTech Renewable Energy (Hangzhou) Co. Ltd (ASRE), which is jointly owned by our partner, Advanced Solar Power Hangzhou Inc. (ASP). The business model consists of having ASRE finance, install, own, and periodically service solar energy installations mounted on the roofs of customer-owned facilities. The customer does not pay for the installed solar energy unit, but instead undersigns a long-term, 20-25 year contract to buy all the electricity the relevant unit produces. ASRE’s current income comes from the sale of electricity to customers, along with various forms of subsidies based on kWh production. Focus is now concentrated on building a backlog of orders for 2019 and beyond, with the goal of obtaining an installed capacity of 605 MW (megawatts) by the close of 2021, which in 2022 will be set into full operation, generating current annual sales amounting to approximately 1 billion SEK (ca. 100 MEUR).
