EH Smith expands solar offering

The Midlands based merchant, which has stocked solar products for the last seven years, has expanded its range of components for commercial rooftops by including tariff-free modules from the Indian manufacturer.

It will be stocking modules of the Eldora Ultima series, targeting a total volume of 20 MWp over the next 12 months.

Andy Oram of EH Smith, said: “Anyone who wants to fully exploit the potential offered by sustainable, energy efficient and low carbon construction will have to consider photovoltaic solutions as integral part.

“This is why we want to offer all our customers the right solar modules for their projects. The Eldora Ultima series is particularly meant for developers/installers who are looking for modules with an excellent price-performance ratio without compromising on the quality. Vikram Solar modules also fit in well with our claim of offering the most up to date ‘green’ products available on the market.”

Vikram Solar already distributes its product in 32 countries and believe this latest collaboration represents a further expansion of its network of partners.

Davide Marro, head of business development Europe at Vikram Solar, said: “Our solar panels have passed numerous quality audits and performance tests in the past to qualify for large-scale solar farms in the UK and to satisfy investors. We are extremely happy that the same quality products are now offered by EH Smith for customers who operate on commercial rooftops.”
