Solar Exchange Opens, Auctions $28 Million In Solar Goods In 1 Week

September 26th, 2013 by  


Earlier this month, I wrote about the “eBay of solar energy” launching on September 9. The website in mention, SolarExchange.com, is apparently off to a good start. In the first full week, over $28 million worth of solar goods were put up for auction.

In case you missed the first article and are unaware of the site, Solar Power World‘s Frank Andorka has a good summary: “Solar Exchange uses online business-to-business (B2B) auctions and request for quote (RFQ) capabilities to facilitate sales and procurement activities. These capabilities create a direct connection between qualified solar businesses, large and small, along the entire solar value chain.” Yep, that includes “raw material and component suppliers, panel and BOS manufacturers, Engineering-Procurement-Construction (EPC) companies, developers, integrators, utilities, and power companies.”

It seems something like this would have come along sooner. But hey, better late then never.

To start with, 25 companies are participating in the platform. Though, that number is sure to grow. The initial users/members are:

Hanwha SolarOne, Astronergy, REC, GCL, ReneSola, LDK, Conergy, ET Solar, Wirsol, Omnik New Energy, Motech, GPPV, AEG, Empergy, Eoplly, Harsha Abacus Solar, Hareon Solar, Galileo Solar, Kohima, TATA Power, Amro Technology, Jaisun Solar, Cinnamon Solar and Delta Energy Systems.
