Eight more solar installers in four states have been promoted to the Elite and Premium tiers of Panasonic’s Residential Solar Installer Program. Members of the Residential Solar Installer Program receive Panasonic’s support through business investments and access to several benefits. Panasonic Elite Installers are the first in Panasonic’s network to gain access to new products and rebates, while enjoying preferred access to product availability and the best pricing. Elite and Premium Installer benefits include exclusive access to qualified sales leads, a library of cooperative marketing assets they may customize, training programs, and a robust Installer Portal, all of which are designed to help them grow their business.
“We continue to see increasing interest in solar energy in the U.S. With homeowners scrambling to take advantage of tax credits, as well as the ongoing financial and sustainable benefits provided by solar energy, more expert installers are needed to keep up with the demand,” said Mukesh Sethi, Director, Solar and Energy Storage, Panasonic Life Solutions Company of America, a division of Panasonic Corporation of North America. “Panasonic is excited to recognize eight new certified installers for homeowners in California, Florida, Michigan and New Jersey.”
