Rent-a-roof solar installer A Shade Greener has signed an agreement with manufacturer JA Solar Holdings for the supply of 47MW of solar panels. The deal reinforces the company’s commitment to the UK solar market after months of feed-in tariff uncertainty.

Under the terms of the agreement, JA Solar will supply ASG with 47MW of high-efficiency crystalline solar modules. Shipments commenced this month.

“ASG’s unique business model is driving real growth in the UK installation market and we're pleased to partner with them to support their development,” said Dr. Peng Fang, CEO of JA Solar.

“Our modules are ideally suited to the rooftop market, and the reputation we share with ASG for providing customers with high-quality, high-efficiency products makes us a perfect match. This is one of our largest sales agreements to date in the UK and we look forward to working with ASG to meet the energy needs of an ever greater number of UK customers.”

Meanwhile Stewart Davies, Chairman of ASG, said: “JA Solar’s reputation for providing high-quality, high-efficiency products makes this an ideal partnership for us.”

“We aim to provide our customers with unrivalled product quality and reliability, which is why it's so important that we select the right manufacturing partners to work with. We look forward to working with JA Solar to meet the demand for rooftop installations in the UK.”

ASG currently carries out an average of 400 residential installations per week across the UK. The majority of ASG’s business is made up of rent-a-roof installations, which are installed free-of-charge in return for the feed-in tariff payments.
