Why do we use SolarWorld?
SolarWorld has manufactured solar in America since 1975, and has remained the largest solar manufacturer going on 40 years. We like to offer this to fans of equipment Made in America.
SolarWorld boasts both 25 and 30-year warranties for their Sunmodule products, which is one of the largest warranties in the solar industry to date. SolarWorld testing goes far beyond the most stringent U.S. and international standards, including the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), producing the best solar panels in the industry.
“Our sophisticated, fully automated manufacturing process moves cells through our factory lines using state-of the-art vacuum handling systems. This means our solar cells remain pristine—and untouched by human hands until final inspection. This automation is crucial to apply the precise amount of pressure to the 2,016 soldering points in each module which cannot be replicated by hand.”
Creating American jobs
“Not only do we employ hundreds of Americans at our facility in Oregon, but SolarWorld helps stimulate the U.S. economy by sourcing domestically whenever possible as well. Since 2008, SolarWorld purchased more than $1.4 billion in equipment, parts, services and supplies from 50 states, plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. This creates even more American jobs and supports American businesses.”
Helping America achieve energy independence
“Together, we can break America’s dependence on foreign and nonrenewable energy supplies—cleanly and sustainably while supporting the American economy.”
