RWE SCHOTT Solar Completes Business Restructuring

December 17, 2003 by Jeff Shepard

RWE SCHOTT Solar Inc. (RSS, Rocklin, CA), a manufacturer and distributor of solar-electric modules and systems, announced that it has completed the restructuring and consolidation efforts resulting from the December 2002 merger of RWE and SCHOTT Applied Power Corp. (SAPC). Now, RSS is focusing its efforts on developing a network of value-added resellers and dealers to help build and service the rapidly growing market for residential and commercial grid-tied photovoltaic (PV) systems.

With the ASE 300 solar module at the vanguard of its strategy, RSS will offer a complete line of packaged residential and commercial on-grid systems to its channel partners, including its free-standing SunRoof FS rooftop systems for flat-roof commercial buildings. RSS will also provide custom-designed commercial and industrial power systems, as well as key system components, targeted primarily at the on-grid market.
