Instantly Access Solar Module Technical, Risk, and Commercial Data From Virtually Every Supplier

Anza is excited to announce the release of our industry-leading technical and risk related data and tools to our clients, now available within the Anza platform. Gone are the days of procurement professionals chasing down suppliers to collect the information needed to complete due diligence or contract negotiations and wasting hundreds of hours reviewing and organizing the data. We’ve assembled critical data on technical specifications, contract terms, and counterparty risk from over 30 suppliers into the Anza platform, creating a one-of-a-kind resource solar procurement professionals can use to free up their valuable time.

To manage the unpredictability of the solar market today, buyers often stick with evaluating a few of the top Tier-1 manufacturers to manage solar module technical risk for their company. Without a broader view of available options, it’s easy to miss out on other suppliers with similar risk profiles, often with modules at lower pricing or higher production, that would create more project profits. With instant access to structured technical and risk data and financial details for the products and manufacturers in the Anza platform, buyers can now consider more vendor options, increase project value, and feel confident in their decision-making in less time.

Hear from Mike Hall, Anza’s CEO, about the technical module and counterparty diligence challenges and how Anza’s new technical and risk-related data and tools can help.
