7.12.2006: Meldung: Suntech Announces Supply Contract with ARISE

Suntech Power Holdings, one of the world"s leading manufacturers of photovoltaic (PV) cells and modules, has announced that its subsidiary, MSK Corporation, has reached an agreement with ARISE Technologies Corporation, to distribute the MSK Just Roof(TM) system in Canada. Just Roof, one of MSK"s several unique Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) systems, functions as a fully self-contained watertight roof structure, eliminating the need for traditional roofing materials below the panels. The Just Roof product, which can be seamlessly integrated into home design, is ideally suited for new construction projects, but can just as easily be retrofitted to existing roof tops.

""The Just Roof(TM) BIPV system offers individual homeowners a practical means of integrating solar energy generation systems into a building"s structure,"" said Dr. Zhengrong Shi, Suntech"s chairman and CEO. ""MSK"s BIPV systems are already seeing substantial sales penetration in Japan where they are even being offered as a standard feature by some of our home builder customers. We look forward to encouraging the adoption of this exciting solar technology in North America and Europe.""


Consumer demand for solar products in Canada is expected to be driven by recent initiatives promoting the use of renewable energy. Under Ontario"s Standard Offer Program, the Ontario government will pay approximately $0.37/kWh for power generated by solar energy over a period of 20 years. To promote this new policy, the Canadian government recently partnered with ARISE and MSK to install North America"s first Just Roof(TM) system on a demo home in Waterloo, Ontario.


Since MSK Just Roof(TM) was first introduced, more than 4,000 systems have been installed in Japan. ARISE will begin marketing the MSK Just Roof(TM) system early next year.




ARISE Technologies is dedicated to accelerating the use of solar energy in mainstream North American markets. The Company"s shares are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol APV and on the Frankfurt Open Market Exchange under the symbol A3T.
