Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc.(NASDAQ:ASTI), a manufacturer of consumer and off-grid products integrated with flexible thin-film photovoltaic modules (CIGS), announced the company's partnership with Power IT-2-Channel, a United Kingdom-based consultancy, for the distribution of Ascent's EnerPlexTM series of consumer products in the United Kingdom.
Mark Power, Managing Director of Power IT, comments: "We are delighted to have won the opportunity to take Ascent's new consumer range of solar power products to market in Europe. There is clearly significant interest in the potential of renewable energy for CE devices, especially Solar, but all too often in the past the practical reality has failed to live up to the hype. The arrival of EnerPlex's award-winning products changes the landscape entirely and offers consumers a real option when it comes to sourcing power on the move — given how much we now all rely on our mobile technology, the opportunities are huge and growing all the time."
Ascent's EnerPlex series is quickly changing the way consumers view solar; with the SurfrTM line of solar and battery integrated phone cases, as well as the KickrTM line of portable solar chargers, EnerPlex products enable consumers to hold the power of solar in their hands. The addition of the JumprTM line-up of portable batteries now enables consumers to have a complete, integrated, solar charging and storage solution for life on the go.
Rob Roche, Ascent's Vice-President of Sales and Marketing said "This exciting partnership will immediately expand the reach of Ascent Solar's products and distribution channels in the United Kingdom, leveraging Power IT's deep connections in the British market to quickly help Ascent become a recognized player in consumer electronics and specialty outdoor gear markets."
