Solar company presents its product portfolio of innovative photovoltaic solutions at RENEXPO® Poland in Warsaw from October 17-18, 2012

Alheim-Heinebach, Germany, October 11, 2012 – The Kirchner Solar Group, an international manufacturer and project developer of solar systems, present their product portfolio of innovative and powerful solar power generation solutions at the RENEXPO® Poland in Warsaw on the 17th and 18th of October, 2012. Thereby, the solar company will expand its activities to the Polish market and search for local sales partners. The expert audience can inform itself at booth C10 about the sonnen_system tracking solution that the Kirchner Solar Group self-developed, the PV-MobiLab, the company’s mobile test laboratory for solar modules, as well as a choice of photovoltaic installations for private homes, commercial rooftops and open spaces.

“The Polish solar energy market has large potential. The RENEXPO® Poland is the ideal platform from which to enter into a dialogue with investors, municipalities, utility providers and relevant decision makers of the energy industry. Therefore, we make use of the trade show to search for new local partners”, says Thomas Czarnecki, Head of International Sales at the Kirchner Solar Group. He adds: “We provide tailor-made solutions and guarantee high quality and performance standards of the implemented components. This also gives our partners an edge. Besides, the Kirchner Solar Group has participated in the solar energy market for more than 20 years, and thus benefits from our experience and presence when entering new regions. Today, we are represented in 13 countries worldwide, with wholly-owned subsidies and realized projects in over 30 different countries.”

Poland: A market with potential
Poland has set itself the target of increasing the share of renewable energies to 15.5 percent of its portfolio by 2020, and will therefore introduce a feed-in tariff for a photovoltaic power plant in 2013. The new regulation replaces the quota system, which is currently in place, and lets experts expect a dynamic market development. For small-scale solar power plants, the draft law earmarks compensation rates of up to 25 cents per kWh. By this, the Eastern European state will be able to diversify its energy mix, which is predominantly based on coal and natural gas at present.

About PV tracker systems
The “sonnen_system” PV tracker systems, a product of the Kirchner Solar Group, are astronomically controlled biaxial systems. Using a rotatable mount, the solar modules are continuously positioned at a 90 degree angle against the sun. This innovative technology ensures that the radiation angle against the module is optimal at all times. In this way, these solar systems will deliver up to 45% more yield than systems sitting on a fixed structure. So far, Kirchner Solar Group have produced and installed 11.000 tracking systems worldwide.
