As part of its ongoing expansion and investment in North America, global renewable energy developer, service provider and distributor BayWa r.e., is acquiring Canadian solar distributor and service provider, National Solar Distributors Inc.

“Canada’s solar market is growing steadily and reached over 3 GW of installed capacity last year,” commented Frank Jessel, Global Director of Solar Trade at BayWa r.e. “As BayWa r.e. continues its expansion in the Americas, Canada is now an important market for us. Our partnership with National Solar Distributors comes at an ideal time, with both companies and the market poised for an exciting period of continued growth. I’m really pleased to welcome the National Solar Distributors team to the BayWa r.e. family.”

In addition to PV product distribution, BayWa r.e. is also highly active in the utility scale solar project development market and operations services market in North, Central and South America.

Established in 2014, National Solar Distributors serves all of Canada’s provinces and territories as a wholesaler of equipment for the residential and commercial grid-tie markets, as well as for industrial and small off-grid applications. The company has grown quickly into a reliable and respected source for high-quality products across Canada. Their technical strength and focus on customer service closely align with BayWa r.e.’s own values and customer-led philosophy.

Combining forces with BayWa r.e.’s global logistics and technical expertise will further strengthen the support provided to National Solar Distributors’ customers from coast-to-coast-to-coast, who will continue to be served by the same friendly and local experts on whom they have come to rely.

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.

We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
