Silfab Solar signed a supply contract to deliver high-efficiency panels to PetersenDean Roofing & Solar, the United States’ largest privately held solar and roofing company. The initial commitment is for Silfab SLA-M 310 all-black modules with the first shipments to begin this month.
“While some organizations in the space are contracting, we are in expansion mode,” said Jim Petersen, founder and CEO of PetersenDean. “Almost 35 years of disciplined commitment to customer service, quality standards, and sound construction practices continues to drive our success into the future.”
Silfab’s production facility is considered one of the most advanced in the world and capable of delivering orders anywhere in the United States within days. Additionally, Silfab is exploring U.S. manufacturing opportunities and locations to better service growing customer demand.
“Silfab’s reputation in the solar industry is sterling. The company consistently delivers some of the highest-quality solar modules for the United States,” said Gary Liardon, President of PetersenDean – Consumer Division. “PetersenDean customers will continue to receive superior performance and reliability from our installations because we’ve chosen Silfab as one of our key partners in our commitment to create American jobs by growing the renewables market in the United States.”
Silfab has leveraged its decades of solar experience and international partnerships to design and manufacture some of the highest-output PV modules with superior quality. Silfab continually invests in automating its manufacturing process while dedicating technicians and engineers to focus on quality control and design. New manufacturing methods, such as fully automated bussing, has helped Silfab to drive down the price of solar modules by reducing production costs.
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.
