Solar Energy Firms Face Influx of Rush Orders


Jan 09, 2012

In response to the influx of rush orders, major solar-energy firms, including Green Energy, Giga Solar, and Motech will shorten their Chinese Lunar New Year holidays.

Global clients have placed rush orders with Taiwanese firms, due to the output reduction by major U.S. and European firms and the U.S. policy against dumping and subsidy for the solar-energy industry.

Green Energy, Giga Solar, and Motech are leading Taiwanese firms in the fields of solar-energy silicon wafer, conductive paste, and battery, respectively. In the face of soaring orders, Giga Solar will cut short its Chinese Lunar New Year holidays to only two to three days and the situation is similar with Green Energy and Motech.

The booming business is unusual for the first quarter, which is traditionally an off season for the solar energy industry. The three companies may see their businesses bottom out in the quarter, ahead of their domestic peers. One major reason for the appearance of rush orders is the U.S. policy opposing dumping and subsidy for the solar-energy industry. Green Energy further benefits from the 50% reduction in output announced by REC of Norway, a leading solar-energy silicon-wafer manufacturer.

Thanks to the surging demand, Giga Solar racked up over 30% growth in revenue last December and may earn profits equivalent to 2.5 times its capital last year.

Giga Solar reported that the U.S. policy triggered influx of rush orders last December, boosting capacity utilization rate. Demand for conductive paste also expanded simultaneously.
