These panels are designed to take advantage of the domestic PV supply chain and can include over 90% domestic content, making it perfect for Buy American, ARRA and Ex-Im Bank funded projects.
The USA Series includes high efficiency monocrystalline modules such as 60-cell 250w and larger 80-cell 350w modules. Product has already shipped out to projects in Arizona, Florida, Maryland, New York and Ohio.
Gideon Needleman, Perlight's Business Development Director commented, "We are very excited to be making our solar panels in the USA.
