SOLON SE expands its activities in French overseas departments
The French market is one of SOLON's core markets and the thirdlargest European sales market for SOLON products after Germany and Italy. The French overseas departments are even more attractive for solar investments than mainland France since they offer considerable tax breaks for investments in solar power systems in addition to a defined feedin tariff for every kilowatt hour supplied to the grid. Roughly onefourth of all solar power systems installed in France in 2009 are located in overseas departments, and demand continues to grow.
SOLON SE is one of the largest manufacturers of solar modules in Europe as well as a supplier of solar system technology for largescale rooftop and greenfield installations. The SOLON Group has subsidiaries in Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, and the U.S. and employs some 900 people worldwide. SOLON's core business is producing solar modules and photovoltaic systems along with planning and constructing large rooftop installations and turnkey solar power plants all over the world.
