Fronius USA updates installer partner program — here’s what’s new

Fronius Partner Program

Fronius USA is re-debuting its solar installer partner program, starting June 3, with new exclusive benefits, specialized trainings, and a new “Service Authorized Installer,” designation dedicated to repairs and O&M work.

According to Fronius, the impetus for the redesigned program is the rapid growth of the solar industry, which is in need of a renewed commitment to solar installation education. In addition, a growing number of solar inverters are reading reach the end of their warranty period, increasing demand for companies to service or repower aging systems.

Fronius is expanding its partner program not just to increase the number of installers utilizing Fronius products, but also to broaden the geographic availability of solar technicians for PV system owners seeking servicing in their vicinity.

Fronius partner program: what’s new?

The Fronius partner program is not just for proficient installers. It is now broken into three tiers, to suit both novice solar companies and those specializing in operations, repair, and maintenance of residential or commercial solar systems.

All three levels must fulfill criteria to become a partner, alongside meeting annual benchmarks to maintain partnership status, while reaping benefits such as exclusive service work, parts ordering, Fronius support and much more.

Service Authorized Installer | Recognizing the increasing demand for PV servicing, Fronius introduced the Service Authorized Installer program. This partnership, dedicated to in-field repairs, requires minimal criteria for enrollment, receiving the benefit of access to exclusive service components unavailable to non-partners.

Fronius Trained Installer | Here, comprehensive trainings are offered, both in-person and online, for aspiring professionals as they embark on their solar journey, or those looking to expand their Fronius installation portfolio on their path to becoming a Fronius Solutions Partner.

Criteria? In return, Fronius Solutions Partners are empowered with exclusive service work, customer leads, spare parts ordering abilities, complimentary premium digital services, prioritized technical support, early access to new product training, marketing and sales tools and much more.

Annual criteria to remain in the Fronius partner program and receive these benefits can range from number of Fronius installations, use of Fronius digital tools, attending webinars, technical trainings and Fronius presentations or demonstrations, or completing online E-Academy courses.
