Power-One employs thousands of people worldwide and is certified to ISO standards at each of its global facilities. Power-One is publicly traded on the NASDAQ exchange under the ticker symbol PWER.
UniRac, another of SOLARIS Solar Division’s primary strategic partners, is the leader in the critical PV mounting market, utilizing industry-leading technology with a broad range of product solutions and services to accommodate any type of solar installation. In business since 1998, UniRac rigorously tests and guarantees each of its mounting systems, using in-house quality control assurance staffers as well as third party analysts and reviewers. UniRac will likewise act as the SOLARIS primary structural engineers to design each individual project mounting system to withstand all local environmental and EPA issues, i.e.: Hurricanes, high winds/sandstorms, rain, extreme heat and humidity, etc. With the vast majority of solar installations being in the tropics and sub-tropics, all SOLARIS panels are designed to specifically function with greater results in these regions unlike the slow deterioration and reduced energy output of silicon crystalline panels.
In addition to its strategic corporate partnerships, SOLARIS partners with individual experts in their respective geographies. Under SOLARIS supervision and control, they undertake the EPC, complete material supply, installation, servicing and maintenance for the solar installations contracted for and installed by SOLARIS. These local resources will include premier solar installers and local electrical contractors all vetted by the company as to their expertise, experience and reliability. All of these experts will possess any licenses, performance and maintenance bonding, permitting required by the jurisdictions in which the systems will be installed. By utilizing available local labor in performing these functions the company expects to realize significant savings in both expenditure and time as compared to the use of a centralized work force that would require expensive deployment to and provide them with adequate local housing for each installation site.
The choice of Florida as the company’s corporate home is intentional and not incidental. The state of Florida is an under-exploited market for PV power generation systems as are its Caribbean island neighbors, in addition to Mexico, Central and South America, all of whom are desperately seeking to convert to renewable energy sources. With 12 continual months of sunshine, the current PV power generation levels could rapidly increase 10 fold or more within the next 5 years according to industry experts. Texas, Nevada, Florida, California as well as many other cities and states are also projected to similarly increase their need for solar power systems over the same period.
The US domestic PV generation footprint for 2008 was 367MW and grew to 485MW through 2009. Based on industry observations, the 2010 numbers were expected to reach 1GW for the first time The actual numbers, as per PV Magazine, Solar Buzz and Renewable Energy Focus all being the industry leading experts are: USA PV installed for 2010 was 1650 MW, for 2011 was 1855 MW and domestic PV generation for 2012 is estimated to reach 2400 MW’s. The worldwide Solar PV generation for 2009 was 7.3 GW, for 2010 it was 11.86 GW, for 2011 it was 21 GW and for 2012 it is predicted to be in excess of 26 GW.
At the sixth annual “Global Solar Demand Conference” held in Munich, Germany on June 12, 2012, the current status and future trends for solar power worldwide was internationally assessed. The conference was attended by over 1,000 of the solar industries leaders and experts. The interactive conference focuses on the solar demand dynamics in the world’s major and emerging PV markets.
At this year’s conference one major consensus emerged, that if the current worldwide demand for solar was to be implemented in one year, demand would dramatically exceed all existing global solar panel production capabilities. Interestingly, some major topics at the conference were, “USA: The Sleeping Giant is Awakening”, “The Potential for Solar PV in Latin America”, “Japan, How its Move Away from Nuclear, Helps Solar PV” and “China, No longer Just Supply”.
The timing of the above referenced subject matter at the recent “Global Solar Demand Conference” in Munich “June 2012” namely: “USA: The Sleeping Giant is Awakening,“ is indicative that the entire US is going in the direction of Solar energy generation as the preferred and predominate means of new electric power generation.
The inferior Chinese Government subsidized solar panels have proven to be inefficient and unacceptable. The US has recently imposed exorbitant import duties on these solar panels so as to discourage their importation and use in the US. Nuclear power plants are quickly becoming a thing of the past-being phased out and shut down with NO new nuclear power plants designated for future construction. Japan has already taken the lead, mandating that all of their solar panel manufacturers immediately cancel any export orders, with the Japanese Government sequestering all existing solar panel inventory and future solar panel production, requiring that they be used solely for Japan’s domestic power production needs (Nuclear Energy Replacement Program).
The demand for solar is growing at a faster pace than the present worldwide solar industry can possibly or reasonably expect to produce!
With the ongoing rise and instability in fossil fuel prices, with their being no apparent signs of this abating anytime soon, with the closings world wide of nuclear and coal burning power plants, the company believes it to be the optimal time and opportunity to leverage this situation. SOLARIS will provide easy and reliable access to environmentally friendly and cost effective alternatives to the current power generation technologies that currently dominate the world. There has never been a better business climate than currently exists for the propagation and growth of the solar panel generation industry and SOLARIS is now geared up for and intent on capitalizing on this unique and timely opportunity.
