Our business model for multipliers
Self-generated solar power is a very popular solution for a sustainable and economic power and heat production as well as for electric mobility matters today. Potential customers often prefer to approach companies which are active in sectors such as energy, building design and financing, for instance:
- Energy suppliers
- Energy consultants
- Construction companies
- Credit institutions
Due to their regular contact with costumers, who might be interested in investing in a solar power system, those potential multipliers are highly sought-after cooperation partners in the business of photovoltaic systems.
With a simple business model, EWS offers those partners a risk-free entry to the solar power market at no charge, and, in addition to that, answers to future topics such as energy storage systems, smart home and electric mobility. As an established and trustworthy contact, those companies can channel their customers’ interests without any effort, provide competent advice and boost their “green” image at the same time.
With an energy price of less than 5 cents per kWh for large-scale installations and 9 - 14 cents for small private and medium-sized commercial PV systems, self-generated solar power is also the most economic way of becoming independent of future electricity price increases in Northern Europe today. As a consequence, the forecasts for a global PV growth are very promising.

New demand trends such as energy storage systems, solar-powered heat pumps and electric mobility contribute to the positive solar outlook. The PV industry is on its way to becoming a supporting pillar of the energy transition and climate protection. New business models also offer excellent opportunities for companies outside the industry to benefit from this development.

Your core competence
With our experience of more than 35 years in the solar market we see excellent opportunities of success in every stage of the value chain, as long as the required expertise is available. As a supplier, however, you are under particular pressure due to the fierce competition on the one hand and the warranty obligations on the other, especially in the light of the constantly tightening consumer protection regulation.
As an operator of a solar power system, you achieve the best ratio between risk and profit if the system is built on your own property and you have made no compromises on the quality of the acquired components and services.
As an intermediary of contacts (multiplier), you also have major advantages and even less risks.

We would like to exchange views on the opportunities and risks of each position in a personal conversation with you.
No matter how you position yourself: EWS is happy to be your partner!

Our white label online tools can be customized to fit the design of your website. EWS will provide regular updates of all contents and data. QuickPlan allows your customers to get to know all relevant parameters for a sound project planning.

Your costumers can choose from 3 options how to get an offer: They can simply enter their contact details, have a rough project outline or, with just a few clicks, come up with an approximate evaluation of the prospects of success for the planned solar power system.
The input mask of QuickPlan is clear and intuitive even for laypersons. Just try it out here! After only a few clicks, you will receive a result and a documentation which includes tabular and graphical evaluation.

In contrast to many other suppliers of white label portals, we do not charge any user or license fees. Unlike other providers of online platforms, EWS is neither interested in trading customer data. The EWS online tools are supposed to offer your customers valuable expert information and sound calculations. You will find no package deals as every solar electric project must be calculated individually in order to optimize costs and benefits.
To ensure the satisfaction of your customers, we only forward their projects to well-versed and reliable installer partners who commit themselves to adhering to clearly defined process standards.
With more than 35 years of experience in the photovoltaic market, we assure the highest quality standards of the components used as well as their constant availability, thanks to efficient warehousing and delivery logistics.
