Upsolar, a well known global solar manufacturer, and Greek company RSEnergy are teaming up on a 2 megawatt (MW) solar farm in Igoumenitsa, in Northwestern Greece.

The new deal adds to Upsolar’s 55MW of solar energy located within the country since 2010.

An Upsolar official is very keen they can continue to see solid solar growth within Greece for their product.

“As customers in Greece seek new methods to secure strong, long-term investments, the country’s solar market has the potential to become a major global player in the coming years,” said Upsolar Greece Country Manager Ioannis Markatatos.

“Thanks to our partnerships with reputable partners like RSEnergy, Upsolar is poised to achieve significant market share across the region,” he added.

Meanwhile, CEO of RSEnergy Müller-Polyzos said customers are very pleased with the high quality of Upsolar’s product, while providing a quality investment for investors.

“RSEnergy has constructed projects with Upsolar PV modules all over Greece. The installations show very high yields. Our customers are extremely satisfied with the quality components deployed.”

“In addition to the very high electricity production, Upsolar provides security to the investors by means of the PowerGuard insurance. The PowerGuard insurance is backed up by industry-leading insurance companies with A ratings. This provides investment security to our customers over the whole lifetime of the project,” Müller-Polyzos said.
