SOLARWATT closed the first quarter with the strongest result in the company's history. From January to March 2020, the Dresden-based company increased sales by 60 percent compared to the same period last year.
For SOLARWATT Managing Director Detlef Neuhaus, the figures are a positive signal: "Despite all the difficulties caused by the corona crisis, we were able to close the first quarter well above our expectations - thanks especially to the great commitment and flexibility of all employees", he explained. " We are in a very fortuitous position and well equipped for the future.”
High demand and extra manufacturing shifts
However, there are currently no signs of a significant drop in demand for SOLARWATT in Germany due to the corona crisis. The customers interest in producing own electricity from renewable energies and more independence from electricity suppliers is constantly high. From January to March, more than twice as many orders were received as in the first quarter of 2019. In order to meet the high demand in the best possible way SOLARWATT has introduced extra manufacturing shifts in recent weeks.
