Mexico City, Mexico (29 November 2018): PROINSO,a global leader in the solar energy market, has signed a distribution partnership with Solar Power Group (SPG), a leading solar distributor in Mexico. The synergy will result in an enhanced product and service offering, and higher distribution efficiency.

This distribution partnership will allow the companies to consolidate PROINSO’s global experience derived from over 2.7GW of projects and over a decade of partnerships with world-leading solar manufacturers; and SPG’s position as a leading solar distributor in Mexico. PROINSO and Solar Power Group will provide turnkey professional project services to their clients for commercial and industrial, utility, and residential and off-grid projects. PROINSO’s global project experience and long list of corporate and government clients serves as a guarantee of trust and the highest quality of service.

PROINSO’s distribution channels will be spread throughout Mexico, with warehouses located in Monterrey, Guadalajara, Manzanillo, CDMX and Nuevo Laredo, resulting in increased speed of delivery and reduced logistics costs, which will ultimately benefitthe end customers.
