Advanced Green Technologies (AGT
), the self-proclaimed
"world’s largest distributor of Uni-Solar laminates" is probably the second largest customer of Unisolar
to purchase about $3 million, or about 1MW, worth of laminates eachmonth). However, a quick add up of the solar projects they have listed
on their web site shows less than 0.6MW worth of commercialinstallations (including their own roofs) plus less than 0.03MW worthof residential
solar roofs (including management’s residence). Apparently, they also shipped about 7MWs
($22/$3 ASP) to the GM project in Spain (secretly, as AGT
was never mentioned in the press release
). By now they should have purchased more than 15MWs
) worth of laminates. Thus, they could now have an estimated close to 7MWs
worth of laminates (or over
50,000 pieces of PVL-136
) in unsold inventory.
So what can a distributor likely stuck with so much inventory (7 years worth of sales) do? Hastily create a new web site
targeting unsophisticated potential customers, in anticipation of stimulus money, of course!
