Dresden, 17 August 2023 – Sunmaxx, a developer and manufacturer of photovoltaic-thermal solar (PVT) modules, has received an order totaling 1 MW for its PVT modules from Regensburg-based heating and solar specialist Kütro GmbH & Co. KG. At the same time, it has added Kütro to its network of specialist partners. Sunmaxx is considered a pioneer in the field of PVT technology and is expanding its sales and specialist partner network accordingly. The PVT modules of Sunmaxx can be used with brine heat pumps for a climate-neutral power supply in single and multi-family homes, office and industrial buildings, as well as entire heat networks. In contrast to solutions with air-source heat pumps and normal PV modules, the solution from Sunmaxx offers numerous advantages, such as high cost-effectiveness, maximum efficiency, high reliability and no noise emissions.
Kütro has been on the market since 1996 and offers photovoltaic systems, storage solutions, wallboxes and heat pumps for private households and businesses in the Regensburg area. Services include planning and installation as well as maintenance of the systems. Together with Sunmaxx PVT GmbH, the sustainable supply of electricity and heat from PVT modules will be promoted in the future.
Mirko Köhler, Business Development Manager at Sunmaxx, is delighted with the addition to the Sunmaxx network of specialist partners: “With Kütro, we have been able to win a real veteran and heavyweight of the German solar and heating installation industry for our technology. We are very proud of this. We look forward to future joint cooperation and to many exciting projects.”
Kütro has already implemented its first projects with Sunmaxx modules and is convinced of the technology. Patrick Küffner, Managing Director of Kütro, says: “The Sunmaxx team and their products have convinced us. We believe that this highly innovative product can set new standards in climate-neutral energy and heat supply. That’s why we decided to be on board as a Sunmaxx specialist partner from the very beginning. In addition, Kütro is planning several large PVT ground-mounted systems for municipal heat supply.
The Sunmaxx specialist partner network offers everything from a single source. As a manufacturer, Sunmaxx produces and supplies the PVT modules and supports its partners in the design of the systems. Specialist partners such as Kütro support and advise end customers and ultimately implement the sustainable energy concepts.
