BayWa r.e.renewable energy GmbH (BayWa r.e.) has been a gold member of the international REC partner programme since 2006.
REC is the world's leading supplier of solar energy solutions and provides BayWa r.e. with high quality, high yield solar modules both for its international trade business and for large scale projects. The platinum partnership from REC underlines the ongoing, successful cooperation between the two companies.
Platinum status takes into account the level of commitment demonstrated by the sales partner in terms of increase in sales, certification of installers, common objectives and the training courses on offer, not forgetting the sales figures themselves, of course. As a platinum partner, BayWa r.e. will now benefit from comprehensive assistance in marketing, sales and technical support.
“We are delighted to welcome BayWa r.e. as a Platinum Partner,” says Luc Graré, Senior Vice President Solar Sales and Marketing, REC. “Since joining the REC Partner Program, they have sold REC solar panels with a capacity in excess of 40 MW – including over 20 MW in 2013 alone. The company has certified around 25 Solar Professionals to date and counting, further expanding our network. With a shared commitment to success, we’re looking forward to building and expanding this mutually profitable alliance.”
Günter Haug, Managing Director at BayWa r.e. also welcomes the new Platinum Partner status. “The REC Partner Program gives us the great advantage of being part of an exclusive circle of distributors. REC provides excellent products, and there is clear, shared commitment to building a long-term partnership. So we're delighted to be reinforcing our alliance with Platinum status.”
