On November 15, 2023, Ziegler Energy Solutions and solar module provider Heliene announced a three-year purchase agreement and joint commitment to bring domestically sourced and manufactured solar energy solutions to support regional customers today and into the future.

Drawing on a 110-year legacy of selling and servicing the premier brands in construction and agriculture equipment, Ziegler Energy Solutions expands the growing family of Ziegler Companies to bring vast knowledge and expertise to the renewable energy and distributed generation space. The team supports its customers by simplifying complex energy systems and effectively integrating clean energy with a suite of innovative power solutions, superior equipment, and industry-leading customer experience.

“Leveraging Ziegler’s long history in power generation and Heliene’s high-quality, American-made solar modules, we’re bringing the resources, equipment and technology needed to help customers integrate renewable power in their large-scale, utility-type projects,” said William M. Hoeft, president, Ziegler Companies.

Heliene is one of North America’s fastest-growing domestic solar module manufacturers serving the utility-scale, commercial, and residential markets—the company delivers competitively priced, high-performance solar modules to accelerate the region’s clean energy integration.

To share the partnership announcement, Hoeft and Heliene’s CEO Martin Pochtaruk welcomed key customers and industry partners to Heliene’s Mountain Iron, Minn. production facility, one of their two manufacturing sites dedicated to producing up to 4,800 premium solar panels daily—or more than 1.7 million solar PV modules annually. Attendees were invited to tour the facility to experience how Heliene solar photovoltaic (PV) panels are made.

“This partnership with Ziegler Energy Solutions is instrumental to Heliene’s goals in growing and strengthening the U.S. solar market,” said Martin Pochtaruk, CEO of Heliene. “Together, we have the capacity to respond to the increasing need for clean energy solutions, while creating well-paying jobs for Americans, strengthening our domestic workforce. With the support of the IRA and our industry partners, Heliene looks forward to continuing its legacy of affirming the value of clean energy projects by providing high-quality, domestically sourced solar PV modules.”
