Risen Energy (Australia) will supply solar panels to communities affected by the deadly Australian bushfires, as part of an agreement with pre-fabricated solar technology company 5B. The announcement follows Risen’s earlier contribution of its 400W Jaegar Plus series panels which assisted in an initial display and test site established by 5B. As part of this initiative, solar and battery solutions will be deployed by 5B in various communities across Australia alongside the Resilient Energy Collective.
Risen Energy (Australia) mentioned that they were eager to partner up with 5B to do their part for this campaign as it is in line with Risen’s intention to become more involved in local Australian communities. This will also increase awareness of the benefits of green energy systems in Australia.

Risen Energy (Australia) general manager Eric Lee added, «We are excited to team up with 5B, a forward-thinking Australian organisation, for this noble cause. 5B’s mission of delivering world-class technology to ensure clean energy is affordable and accessible, ties in with Risen Energy’s vision of a green future.» Mr Lee said that Risen was intrigued by 5B’s pre-built, re-deployable solar array MAVERICK system and felt that Risen’s high technology panels would be well-suited to this innovative system.

5B chief technology officer Rhett Evans echoed Risen’s suitability to this project and added, «Risen has been a great partner on the bushfire relief project. They were able to respond rapidly and decisively with local stock and local support. Risen’s product range and build quality is a great match to our prefabricated array systems and they have a committed and growing presence in the Australian market.»

Risen’s Jaeger plus series was launched in the Australian market in 2019 and is the first range of panels featuring 9 bus bars, 158.75mm wafers and half-cut cells. The 400W high efficiency panels offer high output to ensure the MAVERICK system is power intensive and can offer multiple end user solutions to communities affected by bushfire or floods.

The Jaeger plus series panels have had huge success both in utility and rooftop applications. Risen has also announced it they will be releasing two new panels in the market in 2020, its heterojunction (HJT) panels and 500 Wp+ PV modules made with large, 210 mm M12 wafers.
