Viridian Solar continues its expansion through a new partnership to bring its roof integrated solar to the Republic of Ireland.

The new partnership with heating and plumbing firm Heat Merchants will see Viridian’s Clearline Fusion roof integrated solar PV systems brought to the country.

Viridian has been racking up a series of recent partnerships, first with Netherlands-based wholesaler 4Blue BV and a month later Krannich Solar, which gave it access to Krannich’s global customer base.

Back in the UK, Viridian has penned deals with housebuilders Persimmon Homes and McTaggart Group for the use of Clearline Fusion in all new builds with a requirement for solar PV.

Jamie Berryman, sales director of Viridian Solar, says government grants launched in July 2018 for domestic solar, as well as proposals in the government’s climate action plan for an export tariff, have created the right market conditions for the firm to introduce its product to the country.

Alan Hogan, managing director of Heat Merchants, said: “With more and more customers in Ireland looking to install aesthetic in-roof solar, Clearline Fusion is a great addition to our Renewable Energy product range.”
