JIASHAN, China, July 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — ReneSola Ltd (“ReneSola” or the “Company”) (NYSE: SOL), a leading brand and technology provider of solar photovoltaic (“PV”) products, today announced its string inverter, Replus, has formally obtained certification in Australia, Germany, Denmark, the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Greece, the Netherlands, Belgium, Poland, Portugal, Switzerland, Sweden and Romania.
Mr. Xianshou Li, ReneSola’s chief executive officer, said, “Along with our Micro Replus certifications, these certifications are key to expanding our downstream business in international markets. They are a testament to the performance, credibility and safety of Replus, a cost-efficient solution for increasing the energy output of solar modules. Compared to microinverters, string inverters tend to have lower costs per peak watt and greater capacity. We plan to capitalize on our quality-certified string and microinverters to provide households and large-scale PV systems worldwide with a variety of solar energy solutions.”
