The company aims to become one of the largest producers of solar energy in the world. The company intends to expand the sales of photovoltaic panels internationally and to increase sales of these panels in other markets, such as Italy, Germany, Greece, Portugal, and California. A photovoltaic solar panel is a collection of interconnected solar cells encased in a robust and weather tight structure.

Thermal solar panels produce heat energy as opposed to photovoltaic systems which produce electricity. Solaria thermal solar panels are designed to be mounted on the external surfaces of buildings and act as solar radiation collectors, capturing it and transferring it to a heat transfer liquid medium.

Its turnkey projects include design and engineering of the projects; handling all of the licenses and applications including tracking to obtain permits; control of the execution of the installation works in terms of quality and deadlines; start up of the installation; and maintenance.
