San Francisco, Calif.--October 20th , 2009--Following the April 2009 founding of Upsolar America, Inc., China-based Upsolar, an international supplier of monocrystalline and polycrystalline photovoltaic (PV) modules offering one of the global market’s best quality-to-price ratios, announces the opening of its North American headquarters at The Pyramid Center, 600 Montgomery Street, Floor 45, San Francisco, CA.

Upsolar has chosen the prominent San Francisco office space for its strategic location and proximity to existing and future partners. The Pyramid Center office will house sales, marketing and technical support, providing a new, accessible point of contact to existing American partners, clients and prospects.

Zhe Jiang, CEO of Upsolar, says the company’s entrance into the North American PV market marks the expansion of Upsolar’s global reach and mission to improve its PV module-supply service worldwide. With world headquarters in Shanghai, China, Upsolar now has subsidiary offices in Paris, France, and San Francisco with representative offices in Italy, Germany and Greece.

Since Upsolar’s launch in 2006, the company has grown rapidly, with over 60 MW shipped in 2008 and revenues of 165 million Euros, which the company expects to double by the end of 2009 by delivering 120 MW. Upsolar estimates sustained growth in 2010, increasing production-line capacity to 300 MW, approximately 25% of which it plans to dedicate to the North American market.

In conjunction with the opening of its San Francisco office, Upsolar will participate as a Megawatt Sponsor at UpSolarthe upcoming Solar Power International, October 26-29, 2009, in Anaheim, CA.  Mr. Jiang added Upsolar’s presence at the North American solar industry’s largest business-to-business event is an auspicious opportunity to connect with PV partners, clients and future clients in what is now its new U.S. home state.
