The Low Carbon Energy Company has penned a distribution deal with German solar manufacturer, Zentralsolar Deutschland GmbH (ZSD solar).

The partnership will see the Burnley-based company act as sole distributor for zentralsolar’s entire product range in the UK including, panels, inverters, mounting systems as well as the company’s solar battery charger and in-roof PV module.

Richard Garth-Jones, director at The Low Carbon Energy Company said: “It’s a great compliment and a fantastic opportunity to add the zentralsolar range of products to our portfolio. Zentralsolar deutschland has an excellent reputation in Germany and is the Corporate Social Responsibilty Partner for Wolfsburg FC and their ethos fits perfectly with ours in being passionate about delivering quality energy saving systems and serving the local community.”

Gunter Wiesner, export manager for zentralsolar concluded: “We were looking for a delivery partner we can trust and who reflects our company ethos. As a quality  provider in the world’s leading PV market for the last 15 years we needed to be certain that we found a company who can match our ambitions, experience and levels of service and I am delighted to say we found that in the Low Carbon Energy Company.”

The move is the latest in a number of distribution deals inked between UK distributors and European-based manufacturers as the industry seeks to mitigate the impact of EU duties on Chinese-manufactured modules.
