Polar Solar Collaborates with Solar Technology Leader to Become Sunpreme Channel Partner – Promoting Smart Bifacial PV Modules

Bringing Solar Expertise and Personalized Customer Service to California Rooftop Clients

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Polar Solar, a California based solar installer, has joined Sunpreme Channel network — a strategic partnership program designed to deliver solar expertise to residential and commercial rooftop clients through leading solar installers. Sunpreme carefully selects its strategic channel partners, awarding the distinction only to installers that consistently put customers first with high quality installations.

Sunpreme offers customers with Bifacial technology that allows PV module to absorb light from both sides, increasing energy yield (kWh per kWp). Smart Modules with advanced optimization solution further accelerates kWh yield, and peak string level AC/DC ratio using impedance matching technology. These Smart modules feature 21.5% efficient Cells enabling 310W 60-cell and 370W 72-cell, and lowers system costs by increasing string length by up to 30% resulting in fewer BOS components. Additionally, the components work together to communicate wirelessly through the gateway, allowing users to monitor system performance accurately in real time, while meeting NEC 690.12 rapid shutdown safety standards. The modules are double glass, frameless, aesthetically great looking, easy to install, and have a low thermal coefficient of -0.28%/C as well as high sensitivity to low lights.

Polar Solar offers customers with high quality system design and installation for both residential and commercial rooftop customers – with established reputation since 2010. “Our customers choose us because they trust that we will provide them with advanced technology and high quality product backed by personalized customer service. The partnership with Sunpreme is a game changer for Polar Solar — bringing World-Class Smart Module with Bifacial advantage. It allows us to bring industry leading performance that previously wouldn’t have had access to our customers,” said Vernon Stratton, CEO at Polar Solar. “We are excited to work with Sunpreme — their customer-driven culture of technical excellence and high quality products. A perfect fit for our business model,” added Stratton.

“We are delighted to partner with Polar Solar, and warmly welcome them to Sunpreme channel network. They have world-class solar expertise to deploy advanced Smart Bifacial Module designs – for maximizing project financial returns and its lifetime yield,” said Ashok Sinha, Chairman and CEO of Sunpreme. “With differentiated double glass modules boosted by Bifacial gain and integrated power optimizer, Sunpreme has been able to change the market status quo. We now deliver some of the world’s most powerful, premium panels at very competitive energy production costs – utilizing unique thin-film amorphous Si junctions in a Hybrid Cell Technology platform, ” added Sinha.

“We are privileged to partner with a premier installer in making Sunpreme available to Polar Solar´s strong customer base in California. We congratulate Polar Solar for their extraordinary commitment to high quality standards, and helping clients reach their energy goal,” said Surinder S.
