In 2018, Henk met Julian at a photovoltaic conference. Both being true „solar natives“, they immediately got off to a good start, and soon found out that they shared a strong vision: to bring solar energy to the people. Julian had been working on the solar cell and module side of the PV value chain, developing current PERC technology, building PV factories and PV systems, so he was quite familiar with the market requirements. Having founded and headed several companies in the past, it was clear how to proceed – the idea for Solarnative was born.
Both, Henk and Julian are driven by the desire to bring the energy revolution into everybody’s home. Therefore, residential PV systems need to be efficient, low-cost, safe, and easy to install. As Julian puts it: “We firmly believe that Solarnative’s Smart Energy Home with AC-modules is the way to achieve these targets. We are building the future standard for residential PV systems.”
