Exeter distributor becomes ‘authorised reseller’ of global PV brand

Exeter renewable energy distributor SunGift Trade has become an official partner of and authorised reseller for global solar PV manufacturer Canadian Solar, making SunGift Trade one of only a few selected authorised resellers of their products in the UK.  The move is positive news for solar PV installers in the south west of England, who will now have direct access to some of the world’s most highly-regarded solar PV modules, along with the latest technical information that can help them provide an even better service for their customers.

“This is a huge step forward not only for SunGift Trade but also for the growth of solar PV in the south west of England,” said SunGift Trade managing director Gabriel Wondrausch. “Canadian Solar has a trusted global reputation for manufacturing high quality, dependable PV modules, and this partnership also gives us direct access to their technical support team.  This means that we can provide even better support for our trade customers and secure them the best possible deals in terms of price and availability of panels.”

Canadian Solar only partners with well-established, trusted, regional players that have a proven record of offering added value to their customers.  And SunGift Trade – which is based on Christow Road, Marsh Barton, in Exeter – is so confident in the performance and reliability of the manufacturers’ products that it supplied its sister company SunGift Solar with 1,000 Canadian Solar modules for its flagship installation on the Met Office.

Gabriel added: “Canadian Solar modules have that distinctive quality – bankability – which giving us absolute confidence that they will continue to perform at a high level and give consistent results throughout their lifetime.”

Ivan Rubio, General Manager Europe, Canadian Solar, said:  “It is vital for Canadian Solar to continue to build strong relationships with partner companies such as SunGift Trade. Their expertise is of the utmost importance to promote our products and service portfolio in the UK.  Despite the ongoing Feed-in-Tariff uncertainty, demand for solar continues to grow as costs decrease and ROI speeds up. We look forward to working with SunGift Trade to meet this demand.”
