Along with enhanced technology to eliminate potential-induced degradation (PID), S-Energy has made several additional improvements on the modules’ overall performance to provide the highest quality and complete satisfaction to its customers.
“S-Energy has been continuously working with juwi’s affiliates globally, including its parent company in Germany to build a strong foundation based on trust and reliability,” said Mr. Sung-Min Hong, the Company’s Founder and Chief Executive Officer. Hong also added, “We have had a very mutually successful relationship with juwi in 2015 in both U.S. and European markets, and we will strive to keep the bond strong for many years to come.”
