Sept. 24, 2012 - PRLog -- ANTARIS SOLAR, a leading German provider of solar technology, will showcase its new standalone, portable off-grid solar PV system, eKiss, at this year’s Solar Power UK, which takes place from 2nd to 4th October at the NEC in Birmingham. ANTARIS SOLAR’s presence at Solar Power UK underlines the company’s positive outlook and its commitment to the UK market. At booth B36, visitors can test the eKiss system and have a chat with International Sales Manager, Andrew Moore.

Despite reduced Feed-in Tariffs (FITs), intense competition and numerous insolvencies ANTARIS SOLAR is confident about the future of the British market and determined to increase its market share. Thanks to efficient corporate structures, a strong balance sheet and a unique partnership model, the company is well positioned to face any potential obstacles. As part of international direct marketing specialist GOEDE Group, ANTARIS SOLAR shares resources with its sister companies. This saves costs and provides financial flexibility, which in turn translates into competitive pricing of its products and services.

ANTARIS SOLAR products benefit from the highest quality standards combined with maximum reliability and long-lasting performance. Their 30-year performance warranty and 12-year product warranty are amongst the longest and most reliable warranties available in the solar PV sector.

An international manufacturer and wholesaler, ANTARIS SOLAR supplies the whole spectrum of photovoltaic technology. Its newly developed eKiss system and the smaller, briefcase-sized Mini eKiss, offer easy-to-use and flexible stand-alone PV systems for electricity generation and storage in off-grid locations, such as sheds, stables, outbuildings, camp sites, hunting cabins or holiday homes. The systems are also ideal for governments, charities, individuals, aid agencies and churches wishing to fund electricity generation for families and small businesses in rural areas of the developing world.

Available in four versions covering a power range between 350 and 2,000 Watts, the eKiss system (short for energy – Keep it simple & safe) is easy to install and operate and uses maintenance-free AGM batteries for electricity storage. Depending on the configuration of the system, potential applications include washing machines, refrigerators, telephone systems, televisions, laptops, portable power tools, e-bikes, electric golf trolleys and even caravans.

Andrew Moore, ANTARIS SOLAR‘s International Sales Manager, said: „As we all know, the PV market is challenging these days and politics is doing a good job in creating obstacles that PV companies have to overcome. However, ANTARIS SOLAR proves that efficient company structures and international market presence, combined with high quality products, innovation and competitive pricing are the key to success, even when market conditions are challenging. With our expanding partner network throughout the United Kingdom and our expert British distributors, we are confident that ANTARIS SOLAR will grow into the leading German PV supplier in the UK.“
