REC reaches production milestone

Norwegian solar energy company REC announced that they had reached the production milestone of 5 million solar modules during the 13th Solar Expo held on May 9-11 in Verona, Italy.

REC, which produces polysilicon, wafers, cells and modules, has had a strong industry presence in Italy since 2009, having installed more than 50 megawatts of capacity in the country.

The company also announced that they have been awarded the "Top Brand PV" seal by EuPD Research in France, Germany and Italy, the three largest markets in Europe.

The "Top Bran PV" seal is determined through surveys of solar installers and end customers on criteria such as brand awareness, distribution and installer recommendation. It is an indication of both customer satisfaction and reliability of a solar product.

A 2012 report from global solar market analyst IMS Research ranked REC as the largest European supplier of solar modules in 2011 based on megawatts shipped. The company shipped a total of 594 megawatts of modules worldwide in 2011. – EcoSeed Staff
