May 15, 2014 - CBD Energy Limited today announced its entry into the U.S. residential solar market with the signing of a 7KW home system under its solar installations brand, Westinghouse Solar. CBD Energy Limited markets its residential and commercial solar installations under the name Westinghouse Solar.
The 7KW system, for a residence in Allenhurst, New Jersey, is estimated to save the customer approximately 40% on their energy bill and more than $60,000 over the life of the system. Westinghouse Solar will conduct a comprehensive energy assessment to determine whether additional energy upgrades could further increase the energy efficiency of the residence.
"Achieving our first sale is always the hardest and we're delighted that we accomplished this in the fiercely competitive New Jersey residential solar market. We're confident that CBD Energy's extensive experience in residential, commercial and utility solar installations will serve us well as we launch a full spectrum of services under the Westinghouse Solar brand in targeted regions across the United States," said James Greer, SVP of Westinghouse Solar U.S.
