ReneSola has opened a UK office to provide direct support to UK customers and has pledged to establish a long-term service network for the entire country.

The PV manufacturer believes its commitment and investment in the UK market will reap rewards and allow it to improve product availability while building long-term customer relationships.

Ian Glover, newly appointed general manager of the company, said: “We are building a solid foundation for long-term development in the UK renewables community. Our support network will allow us to provide not only one of the best-in-class products but also the peace of mind that comes from dealing with a long-term partner.

“We expect this to appeal to local authorities, EPC contractors and investors, and our set-up should also make it easier for businesses to secure finance for projects faster. By developing close working relationships and understanding the needs of clients, we will support the long-term growth of the UK solar sector.

“The current UK Feed-in Tariff lends itself to a wide range of applications, from rooftop installations on social housing to large-scale investment projects,” added Mr Glover.

“The correct use of solar investment can have a positive social impact that benefits entire communities, and is something we should be proud of and willing to promote further.”

The Renesola UK team is expected to grow to around 20 people and the company, based in Newhaven, is currently recruiting.
