Oldenburg, Prenzlau,19 November, 2009 - aleo solar AG today announced that it is enjoying particularly high levels of follow-on orders. The trend is seen in private solar rooftop installations, agricultural and industry facilities as well as greenfield sites: most follow-on projects and expansions are again using aleo solar modules. Many satisfied facility operators are deploying a second or third photovoltaic system that is also fitted out with aleo modules.
One of these satisfied aleo solar facility owners is the North German farm owner Nanno Addens. Having installed three solar power systems with a total rated output of just under 120 kilowatts (kW) on his outbuildings in 2004, 2005 and 2008, he is now planning to add even more. "I am always wondering which roof might take more solar modules," he comments, and this comes as no surprise because the aleo modules installed at Addens' farm in Wymeer, situated between the Ems and the Dutch border, have produced superb yields, easily more than ten percent higher than forecast.
Customer satisfaction in Germany is not dependent on location or a specific type of installation. Plant owners in the south of Germany and operators on the coast are equally happy with their aleo modules. Johann Donhauser, who owns a farm near Unterleinsiedel in eastern Bavaria, has been installing aleo modules on his farm buildings for six years running. His first solar installation dates from 2004, and he now has a total rated output of 116 kW connected to the grid. Donhauser: "My aleo modules have been delivering high, stable yields for six years now. This guarantees the profitable operation of my solar power systems."
And only aleo modules make the grade for the rooftop installation on the St Marien Clinic in Amberg. The hospital buildings host ten separate systems with a total rated output of 240 kW, which have been generating clean power since 2005. The two south German operators, whose facilities achieve more than 1,000 kilowatt-hours per kilowatt, commissioned Grammar Solar to install their solar power plants. Based in Amberg and one of the very first aleo solar partners, Grammar Solar are experienced solar experts who have installed over 30,000 kW of photovoltaic systems since 1995. "We get consistently positive feedback from facilities using aleo modules," comments Grammar Solar's Wolfgang Dotzler. "These quality modules help us to meet our objective of only installing first-class solar power systems."
The reason for the high levels of customer satisfaction is simple. Unlike most module makers, aleo solar has its own sales unit and can exert an influence not only on product quality but also on installation standards, Director Sales Norbert Schlesiger explains: "A system's economic viability depends on the best modules and a professional installation. Anyone operating a solar power plant using aleo modules is also assured of a first-class installation." Thanks to aleo's network of authorized dealers, aleo modules are only installed by experienced professionals. This brings benefits to the customer in terms of high energy yields. At the same time, operators can rest assured that their solar systems will continue to generate clean power reliably even after the twenty-year subsidy period is over.
