Despite the rising dominance of third-party solar providers, much of the U.S. residential and commercial markets are still comprised of small- to mid-sized local installers. Over 100 of these installers and some national companies in the solar space met last week in Portland, Oregon at SolarWorlds annual Installer Summit.
As the largest crystalline silicon solar PV manufacturer in the Western Hemisphere, SolarWorld maintains a strong presence in these segments, underscored by the companys four decades of U.S. manufacturing experience and established brand.
