Panasonic announced the recipients of its 2021 Customer Appreciation Awards, which recognize authorized solar installers and EverVolt battery installers in the U.S. who exceed customer expectations and sales.
“We are excited to bring back the Customer Appreciation Awards for the third year to celebrate our wonderful Panasonic Elite, Premium and Authorized solar panel installers, as well as EverVolt Certified battery storage installers,” said Mukesh Sethi, Director, Solar and Energy Storage, Panasonic Life Solutions Company of America, a division of Panasonic Corporation of North America. “It has been another challenging year navigating the pandemic, and we are thankful to have such loyal and committed installers providing exemplary service to our customers each and every day.”
Introduced in 2016, the Panasonic Residential Installer Program provides exclusive benefits and business opportunities to tiers of installers who meet certain qualifications.

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.
