Module manufacturer ReneSola has supplied more than 180MW of panels to the UK market during its first year of operation.

The company established its standalone UK business last year and is now operating a warehouse facility in Newhaven and a national service and training programme.

“Year one has been a great success for us and 2014 is already looking strong with many new projects and products on the horizon,” claimed Ian Glover, general manager, ReneSola UK.

“With quality at the heart of our work, we remain focused on expanding the UK’s clean energy industry by increasing the use of solar power and introducing a range of low energy LED products to the market, which we will soon announce,” he said.

“These new products, much like our solar panels, offer advanced, high-quality technology at an affordable price,” said Glover, adding that the company would also be launching small-scale energy storage products in the UK during 2014.

The company is working on a variety of projects from housing projects to 13MW utility-scale sites.

It has grown fourfold during its first year and now employs 21 people.
