Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:ASTI), a developer of state-of-the-art, flexible thin-film photovoltaic modules, integrated into the company’s new EnerPlexTM series of consumer products, announced today the appointment of Sun2Voltage as the exclusive distributor of EnerPlex products in Scandinavia.
Mr. Lars Petersen, Managing Director of Sun2Voltage stated, "Sun2Voltage is both excited and proud to work together with Ascent Solar in targeting the Scandinavian outdoor market. We at Sun2Voltage believe Ascent’s groundbreaking products have the ability to change how consumers in Scandinavia use solar in their everyday lives.”
The EnerPlex series is a diverse line of solar and battery enabled products including the KickrTM, SurfrTM and JumprTM products. The Kickr product line is the first series of portable solar chargers to leverage the lightweight qualities and superior aesthetics of Ascent’s CIGS technology, while the Surfr series of solar and battery phone cases extends the battery life of either the Apple iPhone 4® or Samsung Galaxy S III® also preserving the high level of design quality that consumers demand. The addition of the Jumpr line of battery packs ties all the products together by providing portable and high capacity energy storage solutions.
Mr. John Maslanik, Ascent’s Manager of Business Development said, “Our partnership with Sun2Voltage as exclusive distributor of EnerPlex products in Denmark, Sweden and Norway enables us to deliver our products to a large and growing consumer audience. The Scandinavian consumer has a proven interest in not only the use of renewable energy, but its use in making recreational activities such as skiing, biking and hiking more enjoyable; something which our Kickr, Surfr and Jumpr product lines are perfectly positioned to do.”
Mr. Petersen continued, “With more than 20 years of experience in selling and marketing eco-friendly energy solutions in Scandinavia, Sun2Voltage offers the knowledge and ability to penetrate outdoor markets such as sailing, golfing and skiing which are such an integral part of the Nordic lifestyle."
