A joint partnership between ECS Clean Energy Solutions Ltd. and AS Solar Inc. aims to create a one-stop solution for the Canadian solar market. ECS will provide dealers and installers and, ultimately end customers, with access to end-to-end solar systems from PV product manufacturers, as well as expertise in solar solutions. ECS also offers training, support and technical assistance to dealers, electrical contractors and project developers.

“This partnership between AS Solar and ECS leverages both our strengths to provide the Canadian solar PV market with a one-stop solution, while elevating the services and product offerings to our customers,” said Christy Morrison, ECS’s national business development manager.

“As more Canadians switch to the sun for their energy needs, AS Solar is pleased to partner with such an established name as ECS in the Canadian construction and contracting market,” said Ian Karleff, managing director of AS Solar Inc. “This one-stop solar solution is exactly what is needed to fulfil the goals of a growing number of homeowners, farmers, businesses and developers to participate in the renewable energy revolution.”

ECS Electrical Cable Supply Ltd.—the parent company of ECS Clean Energy Solutions Ltd.—is headquartered in Richmond, B.C. It is an independently owned Canadian distributor of electrical wire and cable, serving the Canadian market for 26 years. AS Solar Inc., based in Toronto, Ont., is the North American division of a European distributor of complete solar PV systems for residential and commercial markets. The two companies will supply a combined network of more than 3500 dealers and electrical contractors with complete solar PV support.
