("Lightway"), the U.S. subsidiary of Lightway Green New Energy Co., Ltd., announced the execution of a Supply Agreement with G&S Solar ("G&S") to provide thirty-four megawatts (34 MW) of multicrystalline solar modules. The Agreement requires G&S to purchase over 122,000 panels from Lightway within a one year period.

Wei Qiang, CEO of Lightway Green New Energy, said, "The future success of Lightway will depend on our ability to develop long term relationships with project developers that have the capability to excel in a market that is dominated by third party financing. We are confident that G&S Solar has an investment strategy that allows them to remain financially aggressive and we are pleased to begin this new partnership that will solidify our eastern seaboard footprint."
Gregg Wasser, Owner of G&S Solar, said, "In today's economic environment, it was essential for G&S Solar to find a module supplier that not only met our criteria of bankability, quality and financial strength, but was also willing to become a true long term financing partner.
