Viper Networks Inc. began receiving shipments of solar panels from Solar of Toledo to begin rolling out for commercial and residential customers throughout the US market. The two companies
had previously entered into a strategic US manufacturing and partnership agreement to expand into the US solar energy market. Toledo Solar is a manufacturer of CdTe thin-film photovoltaic (PV) panels for the residential and commercial rooftop markets with frameless, all-glass, hermetically sealed solar panels.
CdTe solar panels require much less energy to manufacture. Thin-film CdTe panels are 100% recycled with over 90% of all materials reused. Toledo Solar panels are eligible for the 40% ITC credit (available through 2032) which applies to solar panels made entirely in America.
“The world is changing and Viper Networks is preparing to meet the growing demand for renewable energy,” said Farid Shouekani, CEO and President of Viper Networks. “Our manufacturing partnership with industry leader Toledo Solar is growing rapidly as we are currently in the process of setting up a major proof-of-concept project with them for our EcoTech Solutions operations in Illinois, which we acquired in last February.”
“We are proud to help lead America’s renaissance in solar manufacturing by building utility-grade CdTe PV solar technology panels for the residential and commercial markets,” said Aaron Bates, CEO of Toledo Solar. “From day one, we have been committed to providing the highest quality solar solutions while maintaining the highest ethical standards. Our impressive team of skilled workers are based entirely in our rapidly growing factory in Ohio, where we have always sourced our components from suppliers with strict ESG controls.
