About the Chinese initiative
SolTech Energy’s investment in China is conducted in partnership with our partner, Advanced Solar Power Hangzhou Inc joint venture, Advanced SolTech Renewable Energy (Hangzhou) Co. Ltd. (ASRE). The business model consists of ASRE financing, installing, owning and running solar energy installations on customers’ roofs. The customer does not pay for the facility, but instead undertakes to buy all electricity produced by each plant under a 20–25 year contract. ASRE’s current income comes from the sale of electricity to the customers and from various forms of grants per kWh produced. The focus now is on building an order backlog for 2019 and onwards with the goal of having an installed capacity of 605 megawatts (MW) in 2021.
