Leading U.S. solar distributor BayWa r.e. Solar Systems is adding North American solar module manufacturer Silfab Solar to its roster of high-performance solar modules. BayWa r.e.’s record as a reliable and innovative distributor offers Silfab a differentiated approach to the U.S. distribution channel. Likewise, Silfab’s commitment to delivering a high-quality module produced in North America allows BayWa r.e. to expand its product offering to solar contractors who value that backstory. Here’s the store link.
“Silfab manufactures high-efficiency, monocrystalline PV modules in North America, featuring a strong warranty backed by four decades of proven customer satisfaction and product performance history,” said David Dunlap, VP of Operations at BayWa r.e. Solar Systems LLC. “Our new partnership with Silfab provides our customers with a clearly differentiated choice for guaranteed ‘Made in North America’ modules. We are proud to offer an option to our contractors who need to provide proof of domestic products, such as for government projects, or who choose to offer domestic panels as a differentiated option to their customers.”
“The growing North American solar market has benefited from the superior service of BayWa r.e., and Silfab Solar is excited to be joining their lineup by bringing our ‘Made in North America’ Silfab solar panels to BayWa r.e. locations across the country,” said Ryan Adams, Silfab’s director of business development. “With our four decades of solar experience, industry-leading warranty and high-efficiency modules, we look forward to being a great partner to the accomplished BayWa r.e. team.”
More on Silfab: Silfab recently launched its new Elite line of solar modules (check out more in our 2021 Solar Module Buyer’s Guide), the highest efficiency, most durable module yet produced by the company. The panels operate at lower temperatures in concert with superior low-light performance, which together increase energy yield by as much as 6% on a kWh/kWp basis. The advanced back-contact technology reduces front-cell metallization, minimizing shading losses while simultaneously alleviating locked-in mechanical stress in the electrical contacts. These features result in improved performance, better long-term reliability, and higher efficiency.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
