Grape Solar and American Hyperion Solar have signed a strategic partnership agreement at the RE+ Vegas exhibition on September 12th. Grape Solar, a solar distributor and industrial park developer based in Oregon, and American Hyperion Solar, a module brand launched by Runergy Group for the US market, will collaborate to explore the photovoltaic market in the United States and capitalize on opportunities for future cooperation.
Ocean Yuan, the founder and CEO of Grape Solar, and Dr. Longzhong Tao, the Chairman and CEO of Runergy attended the signing ceremony. Jerry Biron, the Senior Vice President of Grape Solar, and Ellen Wang, the Global Vice President of Sales of Runergy were also present. Additionally, the sales and marketing teams from both companies were in attendance.
Both companies share a commitment to partnership and strategic alliances, rather than “I DO IT ALL” and “Me Too” strategy, we understand our strengths and weaknesses, understand the industry’s pain points, and believe “Trust” and “Credibility” are the only currencies in the business world, commented Ocean Yuan, founder and CEO of Grape Solar, “we look forward to this partnership that will enhance our ALL THINGS MADE IN AMERICA strategy. This is further evidenced that our business model is scalable: we can continue to deliver high quality solar panels to our customers in all 50 states, at the lowest possible cost on time, every time.”
Dr. Tao Longzhong expressed enthusiasm about the partnership with Grape Solar, a highly regarded player in the US solar distribution industry. As a rapidly expanding solar module manufacturer based in Huntsville, Alabama, with extensive manufacturing facilities spanning over a million square feet, American Hyperion Solar is among the few US manufacturers capable of delivering gigawatts of high-performance solar modules in a matter of months, rather than years. The collaboration between the two parties will mutually reinforce their respective strengths.
The partnership between Grape Solar and American Hyperion Solar represents a significant milestone in the expansion of the photovoltaic market in the United States. Through their unwavering dedication to partnership and strategic alliances, both companies are poised to surmount industry challenges and foster innovation within the solar industry.
