Vikram Solar Modules can now be installed in any residential solar system that is using financing from Sungage Financial.

Sungage Financial, a leading provider of solar financing solutions, has added the Tier 1 solar module manufacturer Vikram Solar to its approved vendor list. Vikram Solar Modules can now be installed in any residential solar system that is using financing from Sungage Financial.

Ken Oatman, Head of Business Development for the Americas: “After Vikram Solar achieved various certifications such as UL and CEC last year, and a PAN file validation was carried out, being listed as a Sungage Financial approved vendor brings us a step closer to making our products available to more customers in the USA.”

Vikram has been named a Tier 1 module manufacturer by Bloomberg New Energy Finance, and are not subject to anti-dumping tariffs in the U.S. A leading supplier to the Indian solar market, Vikram exports over 40 percent of its production and was named the #1 Module Exporter of the Year at India’s Global EPC Summit in 2015.

Boston, Massachusetts-based Sungage Financial is a leading provider of financing solutions for residential solar installations in the U.S. and makes solar ownership simple, easy and affordable.

Wiki-Solar's current global EPC ranking places Phoenix Solar at No. 17 in terms of MWp capacity commissioned, and No. 8 in terms of projects completed

Phoenix Solar AG, a leading international photovoltaic system integrator listed in the Prime Standard of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, has been included in the top 20 of the global EPC provider list, issued annually by Wiki-Solar, the leading research and information platform tracking the deployment of solar photovoltaic power stations. Phoenix Solar ranks 17th as far as the total capacity of the PV power plants constructed is concerned. In terms of the number of projects successfully completed Phoenix Solar is number 8 worldwide.

The survey includes photovoltaic power plants with a capacity of over 4 MW/AC and reflects projects completed and commissioned by the end of 2015. Since its founding, Phoenix Solar designed and built more than 350 photovoltaic systems, 120 of which have a capacity of over 1 MWp. The total capacity of systems installed will reach some 800 MWp in 2016.

“It has not always been easy for European contractors to respond to the frequent legislative changes in their home markets. Phoenix Solar has been one of the successful ones in finding new markets outside Europe where it can exploit the expertise it has built up over the last decade", said Wiki-Solar founder, Philip Wolfe.

Tim P. Ryan, Group CEO at Phoenix Solar AG, stated: "Our current Wiki-Solar ranking demonstrates how much progress we have made over the past year by designing and building quality commercial solar PV systems, on-time and on-budget, around the world, to drive owner and investor satisfaction. Since the files were closed on the 2015 ranking, we have already added a number of new projects to our reference list. On our way to sustainable, profitable growth, we expect further gains in market share in 2016 and beyond which will also be reflected in future rankings."

Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited (NYSE: YGE) ("Yingli" or "Yingli Solar"), one of the world's leading solar panel manufacturers, today announced its new utility-scale product line, the YGE-U 1500 Series, is available in the Americas. Underwriters Laboratory (UL) recently certified the new panel series for use in projects with maximum system voltages up to 1500 volts DC.

There are considerable benefits to project economics gained through the reduction of balance-of-system costs (BOS) and improvement in large-scale PV system performance gained by deploying Yingli's multicrystalline YGE-U 1500 Series. This product represents an improvement over traditional modules which are typically designed for maximum system voltages of 1000 V DC. Available in power classes up to 340 W, the YGE-U 1500 Series drives BOS savings by decreasing the required number of home run cables, combiner boxes, and fuses in a given project. The higher maximum system voltage also reduces resistive losses, thereby increasing system-level energy yield and improving the project's overall performance.

"With industry analysts citing installation cost savings as high as $0.05 USD per watt when deploying large-scale 1500 V projects, higher maximum system voltages will soon become the industry standard," commented Jeffrey Barnett, Managing Director of Yingli Green Energy Americas, Yingli's U.S. subsidiary. "Our YGE-U 1500 Series, which features a sturdy aluminum frame that is compatible with standard mounting, racking, and tracking solutions, is ideally suited for 1500 V applications."

"Demand for framed 1500 V modules like our YGE-U 1500 Series is on the rise, but particularly in the U.S. and Latin America," commented Alan King, Vice President of Sales at Yingli Green Energy Americas. "We're pleased to bring this innovative product to market by supplying utility and large commercial projects with our high-performing 1500 V technology."
