aleo solar AG to supply Australia with solar modules
Remtron Automation, a Melbourne-based authorized aleo partner, completed the installation of the four-kilowatt rooftop project. "Our customers are showing great interest in German solar modules," comments Adrian Matthews, Remtron's Managing Director. "aleo solar offers outstanding quality, many years of experience in the rooftop systems business and is an excellent partner in terms of both service and marketing." Other installation projects are already underway.
As a sun-soaked continent, Australia offers excellent conditions for photovoltaic plants. Annual yields can reach 2,000 kilowatt-hours per kilowatt of rated output, which is about twice as much as in Germany. In August 2009, the Australian Government announced plans whereby at least 20 percent of its power needs should be sourced from renewable energies by 2020. The Government's launch of the "Solar Credits" scheme is part of this strategy and is aimed primarily at encouraging private households to install solar rooftop plants. Small installations in particular will receive excellent incentives. The Government aims to earmark some AUD 4 million for subsidy programs and major projects in this field.
