Silfab Solar is now shipping solar modules from its latest U.S. manufacturing facility. The new Burlington, Wash., facility is Silfab’s third in North Americaa, features the latest precision machinery and is initially focused on producing the company’s newest Silfab Prime 370 W series.

Since 2011, Silfab has recorded more than a dozen expansions of North American production capacity, including millions of dollars of additional investment to expand and upgrade Silfab’s Bellingham PV module assembly plant just 24 miles north of the new Burlington facility.

“Silfab has a long and successful history of optimizing North American manufacturing excellence and producing high-quality, extremely durable and very efficient PV modules – exclusively designed and manufactured for the North American homeowner,” said Chief Executive Officer Paolo Maccario. “Silfab’s hallmarks – advanced engineering, superior quality and high-touch customer service – will remain at the forefront of our ongoing expansion.”

Silfab launched the highly-automated Burlington facility to meet ever-increasing North American demand for its solar module products. Silfab manufactures the highest-rated, most-durable and powerful back-contact and mono PERC PV modules for the North American residential and commercial markets. Silfab recently earned “Top Performer” ratings under the rigorous PV Evolution Labs testing process.

“Northwest Washington provides Silfab with a highly trained and motivated labor force, a location that incentivizes innovation, and ideal transportation and shipping routes that complement our just-in-time manufacturing model,” Maccario said.

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.
