San Diego-based Borrego Solar Systems Inc. has entered into a partnership with LG Electronics USA to significantly expand the presence of LG's high-efficiency solar modules in the U.S. commercial market, the companies announced Wednesday.
Under the agreement, LG will supply 24 megawatts worth of its Mono X series solar panels, including LG's award-winning Mono X NeON modules, through 2015 to Borrego Solar. Borrego will then sell the panels to the commercial sector as an LG preferred strategic commercial integrator in North America.
"LG has a 30-year track record in solar technologies, and as a result of our pre-existing business relationship with LG, Borrego Solar is confident in LG's brand and ability to deliver superior efficiency, strength of warranty, quality and reliability," said Mike Hall, CEO at Borrego Solar.
The agreement, he added, will allow Borrego Solar to meet rising commercial market demand for top-tier, high-efficiency modules while also keeping Borrego from having to pay tariffs attached to Chinese-manufactured modules.
