BayWa r.e. coordinated the world’s first installation of REC’s new Alpha solar panels on a home near Venice, Italy.
The REC Group is an international pioneering solar energy company. Through its innovative cell technology and patented panel design, the Alpha solar panel is helping homeowners drastically reduce their power bills, save money and thus increase their energy autonomy. This helps the environment and thus preserves places like Venice and many other UN heritage cites whose very existences are threatened by climate change.
The REC Alpha attracted immediate interest from solar installers, with initial orders coming from countries worldwide including Australia, Germany and the US. Due to our longstanding expertise as a leading solar distributor, our global network and our focus on high-quality solutions, BayWa r.e. has been selected by REC Group for the first installation. BayWa r.e. and REC Group share a long history of cooperation across the globe. The company is working closely together with REC Solar Professionals, the firm’s endorsed and trained installers.
In this project, Mr. Livio Gazzetta from Frigotermica Commerciale, Venice, was the chosen installer who set up the first ever REC Alpha panels on a residential home. “Mr. Gazzetta is one of our 150 REC certified installers to date, who have completed our training in Italy”, says Enrico Marin, Managing Director of BayWa r.e.’s Italian distribution business. “As a leading quality distributor of solar components and a REC Platinum Partner, we are proud to be part of the world’s first installation of the REC Alpha Series. The new modules contribute to our smart home solution approach, which stands at the heart of our engagement.”
