Solar Power Delivery Solutions

The solar industry is growing globally while also quickly moving towards grid parity energy production costs.  Not only are there increased demands for greater system performance, reliability and safety across a twenty year project, there is also greater emphasis on effective utility grid integration and greater municipal authority acceptance for 1000 Volt utility grade & scale solar farm solutions that maximize solar power capture and are designed and built by bankable equipment and services suppliers.

When defining company bankability in the context of utility scale solar farms, AETI exceeds the measure as a diversified-market company that has supplied to over 150+ significantly larger customers for over 65 years without incurring the fiscal consequences of any customer – our long term financial success and hence company bankability is based upon extensive use of global codes, practices & standards to deliver high quality products on time and within budget – our products and services are something the traditional energy industries have come to bank on.
