Akeena Solar Continues to Expand Southern California Footprint

Akeena Solar, Inc, a leading designer and installer of solar power systems, announced it has expanded its operations to the Thousand Oaks market of California. The new location at 780 Lakefield Rd., in Westlake Village, Calif., marks the ninth office Akeena Solar has opened in recent months, a response to the rapidly growing demand for its new, sleek Andalay panels. Akeena Solar maintains a total of 10 offices, with one in New Jersey.

"With the right kinds of programs in place, an estimated 50 percent of all new electricity in the U.S. could be generated by solar power within eight years. Thousand Oaks is yet another area where we look forward to delivering clean, renewable power - and expanding solar's reach," said Akeena Solar CEO Barry Cinnamon. "With Akeena's innovative Andalay technology, we offer unparalleled aesthetics, reliability and performance to the solar savvy residents north of Los Angeles."

Akeena Solar recently partnered with Suntech Power Holdings Co., Ltd (STP) to distribute Andalay in Europe, Japan and Australia. With Suntech distributing Andalay overseas, Akeena Solar is concentrating on expanding its U.S. footprint via acquisitions and organic growth.

"As the largest solar power market in the United States, California is a prime target for Akeena Solar's development," said Akeena Solar Regional Sales Manager Thomas Ball. "Americans are more concerned about their sources of energy than ever, and Akeena is poised to make solar a reality for homeowners."
