The companies have also signed a strategic supply agreement for the plug-in electrical connectors that enable the SolarClover’s rapid installation. The SolarClover is a modular 1kW AC solar energy system and scheduled for commercial release late this year.

Mark Goldman, CEO of Armageddon, said: “Tyco Electronics brings a wealth of knowledge and global resources to this strategic relationship, along with an incredible focus on improving the state of the art in solar. Their ability to rapidly deliver new components that meet our product needs while also meeting the stringent demands placed on solar equipment is unparalleled. We’re thrilled to have their support.”

As part of the relationship, Tyco Electronics will provide components to help deliver a complete SolarClover system to the market and will assist with safety and regulatory certifications. The companies will also share information on customer requirements in the residential solar market and cooperate on distribution to various customer segments.
