Sandri Energy Expands Solar Business with Photovoltaic Market Exclusives

10/26/2010

“Our partnerships with these leading solar industry suppliers is perfectly aligned with our capabilities, as well as our goals as an organization” said Tim Van Epps, President of Sandri. “We are proud to have exclusive territories with Fluitecnik and Ingeteam.”

Sandri has invested heavily in the renewable energy sector in the past 12 months with the acquisition of Propell Energy (commercial wood pellet heating systems and bulk pellet distribution) and Deerfield Valley Heating and Cooling (geothermal and solar installer). The Company was recently awarded a $3.2MM grant by the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources to install numerous institutional, commercial and residential renewable energy systems.

“Sandri has been a leading energy company for nearly 80 years, and offering renewable energy products to our customers simply reflects our commitment to providing them with the best available solutions to meet their energy needs for today and tomorrow,” stated Jake Goodyear, Sandri’s Vice President of Renewable Energy.

Fluitecnik Vice President of North America Inigo Gonzalez said, “The successful introduction of Fluitecnik’s PV panels into the U.S. market will be heavily influenced by who our initial distribution partners are. Sandri’s experience and track record throughout New England makes them a solid fit for Fluitecnik’s overall strategy.”

Ingeteam CEO Aitor Sotes added, “With our new US-based manufacturing coming on-line in less than a year, we are rapidly growing our capabilities in this country. Sandri is a key distributor for Ingeteam, covering a geographic area with over 20% of the US population.”
