About the China venture
Soltech Energy's investment in China is conducted in Advanced SolTech Renewable Energy (Hangzhou) Co. Ltd., ASRE, its wholly owned local subsidiaries and Longrui Solar Energy (Suqian) Co. Ltd. The business model consists of financing, installing, owning and managing solar energy installations on customers' roofs in China. The customer does not pay for the solar facility, but instead purchases the electricity that the plant produces during a 20-year agreement. Current revenue comes from the sale of electricity to customers and from various forms of grants per produced kilowatt hour (kWh) of solar electricity. The goal is to have an installed capacity of 1000 megawatts (MW) fully connected to the electricity grid in 2024 by 2023.
ASRE and Longrui Solar Energy (Suqian) Co. Ltd. are wholly owned subsidiaries of Advanced Soltech Sweden AB (publ). ASAB is 51% owned by Soltech Energy Sweden AB (publ) and 49% by Soltech's Chinese partner, Advanced Solar Power Hangzhou Inc.
