ReneSola has brought its sales and operations efforts to San Francisco. The location for its North and South American headquarters didn’t go unnoticed by Mayor Ed Lee, who congratulated the company during Intersolar North America in San Francisco.
“I am excited to welcome ReneSola, a leading manufacturer of solar panels that use innovative, cutting-edge technologies, to the ‘Innovation Capital of the World,’” said Lee. “It’s companies like ReneSola that are growing our economy and driving job creation in our city.”
ReneSola will deliver more than 2.2 GW of solar products globally in 2012, largely because its high efficiency wafers are manufactured in-house. ReneSola has a 91% PTC rating, and the company says its newly released Virtus module offers cell efficiencies greater than 18.3%.
“We selected San Francisco as the regional headquarters for North and South America because this truly is the region’s ‘Solar Capital,’” says Kevin Chen, president of ReneSola America. “Being here will provide us with the best avenue to convey the message of our products’ real value and quality to the rest of the region.”
