NEW JERSEY—Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Kyocera Solar Inc. has secured a new solar products warehouse in Cherry Hill. The warehouse will augment the company’s distribution points in San Diego and Scottsdale and provide effect service for East Coast customers.
“Kyocera’s newest warehouse location enables us to significantly reduce shipping costs for solar modules to our growing list of East Coast solar customers,” explained Chris Brown, eastern regional sales manager for Kyocera Solar Inc. “In addition to reducing costs, we now offer 24-hour shipping to major markets in the eastern corridor.”
Kyocera partnered with NFI, an international provider of logistics, warehousing and distribution services, for its new warehousing location. The company began shipping from the New Jersey facility in late June. Kyocera also partnered with NFI Solar, a developer of solar electric system installations and subsidiary of NFI.
In 2010, Kyocera provided more than 6,100 solar modules for a 1.3-megawatt installation on the roof of the 290,000-sq.-ft. building where Kyocera solar modules are now warehoused. The installation is capable of producing a majority of the warehouse’s annual energy, helping to reduce NFI’s electric bill considerably.
Kyocera supports a wide range of solar customers and programs including residential, commercial, standalone, off-grid systems, government and utility-scale projects.
