SolTech Energy’s jointly owned company in China, Advanced SolTech Renewable Energy Hangzhou Co. Ltd, ASRE, has signed an order with Daikyo Nishikawa TongYang Auto Parts (NanJing) Co Ltd.
The order covers the installation of a 1.1 megawatt (MW) solar energy unit estimated to provide annual earnings amounting to approximately 1.235 MSEK. Over the contract’s 20-year term, cumulative income is estimated to mount to approximately 24.7 MSEK (ca. 2.47 MEUR).
The installation’s annual production will be in the area of 1,155,000 kWh. The customer is contractually committed to buying all the electricity the installation produces over the span of 20 years. Over this same period, ASRE receives subsidies from relevant 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 6.7 MSEK (ca. 0.67 MEUR). Construction of the installation is expected to be completely finished during the month of March 2019.
CEO Stefan Ölander comments:
”A sum total capacity of 90.64 MW – that is the figure we arrive at when we total the sum capacity of installations now coupled to the electrical network with the sum capacity of installations under construction, along with the sum capacity reflected in the installation orders that have recently been signed during the course of this fall. And when all these contributors to a sum total capacity of 90.64 MW are coupled to the electrical network and generating earnings, they will provide an estimated annual income amounting to approximately 115.7 MSEK, or ca. 2.31 billion Swedish crowns in cumulative annual income over 20 years. This subscription economy application is very valuable for the concern.”

Investment in China SolTech’s investment in China is carried out by a jointly owned company, Advanced SolTech Renewable Energy (Hangzhou) Co. Ltd (ASRE), where SolTech owns 51 percent and Advanced Solar Power Hangzhou Inc. (ASP) owns 49 percent. 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 2018/2019 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).
