Hanwha Q CELLS and VP Solar have defined an agreement to increase the synergies between the networks of their professional installers, Q.Partner for Q CELLS and Smart Partner for VP Solar.
Q.Partner, founded in 2016, now includes about 200 certified installers of photovoltaic systems and energy systems throughout Italy that as authorized Q CELLS partners get access to various initiatives and commercial facilities, including access to the Partner Portal, which is a marketing support and dedicated promotional material, the invitation to special training sessions and the receiving of commercial reports.
The Smart Partner network (www.smartpartner.it) was established in 2013 at the initiative of the specialized distributor VP Solar, which coordinates it. During the time, it has gained a strong importance in the Italian market with the participation of over 500 installers. The installation companies interested in free access to the Smart Partner Network can apply to be able to access the dedicated training courses, exclusive innovative technologies, and opportunities for entrepreneurial growth such as the lead generation.
The synergies between the 2 installers networks allow the installers to benefit from many advantages, resulting from the agreements between Q CELLS, producer of photovoltaic modules and storage systems, and VP Solar, which provides products and services quality to Italian and International resellers and installers.
The challenges of photovoltaics in the current hypercompetitive Italian context require a new way of understanding ties and relationships of collaboration; it becomes increasingly necessary to rethink products and services in search of the greatest added value creation for all the players involved, producers, suppliers, installers companies.
This synergy between manufacturer and distributor aims to make all the companies that collaborate with Q CELLS and VP Solar an integral part of a strong and determined group to become a protagonist in the photovoltaic market – says Alberto Nadai, Area Sales Manager of Hanwha Q CELLS.
We think that the photovoltaic market in Italy requires quality projects, aimed to satisfy long-term customer expectations – says Stefano Loro, founder and CEO of VP Solar – and with this strong synergy between Hanwha Q CELLS and VP Solar, I think we can offer the best solutions to the Italian installers under really competitive conditions. I strongly believe it is very interesting what is expected for large photovoltaic systems, from 100 kW up to 1 MW, and beyond
For commercial photovoltaic systems, installers can offer solutions with high-efficiency polycrystalline and monocrystalline Q CELLS modules. In particular, a promotion was formulated for the Q.PEAK DUO G5 mono modules, which offer particularly high performance on small surfaces. Using a world record 6-busbar system, the Q.ANTUM technology combines half-size cells with a state-of-the-art connection technology, in order to achieve extraordinary efficiency in real conditions. This technology works both in the presence of reduced irradiation and on warm sunny days, with clear skies. Q CELLS quality is matched by VP Solar to inverters with or without optimizers and to durable and competitive wiring and assembly systems.
VP Solar also provides dedicated solutions for the financing or payment of supplies.
The installer is also offered a technical and commercial evaluation service for revamping works on Energy Contour plants, where it is necessary to identify which improvements to apply for the expected benefits.
