APS microinverters to be distributed by CFM Equipment/US Solar

APS microinverters have joined the product offerings of CFM Equipment Distributors and US Solar Distributing. Sacamento-based CFM is a top distributor of HVAC and solar systems, with locations in Northern California and Nevada. Its subsidiary US Solar deals exclusively in photovoltaics.

SEATTLE —APS microinverters join the product offerings of CFM Equipment Distributors and US Solar Distributing, in a new agreement between the companies.


Sacamento-based CFM is a top distributor of HVAC systems, with locations in Northern California and Nevada, and also offers solar products through those channels. Its subsidiary US Solar deals exclusively in photovoltaics, and works directly with independent solar contractors through locations in California, Hawaii and New Jersey.

Thomas Nelson, APS vice president for sales, said the agreement strengthens APS' position in key markets and adds two knowledgeable partners to the growing distribution channel.

"US Solar Distributing and CFM Equipment are a well-respected presence in the national PV market, and we're proud to partner with them," Nelson said.

CFM Equipment Distributors was founded more than 30 years ago and later spun off US Solar as an independent division, with a goal of providing professional contractors with a "one-stop" supply resource.

The companies offer complete lines of photovoltaic equipment, along with design and engineering services, professional training, and same- or next-day shipping throughout North America.

APS was founded in Silicon Valley in 2009, and is now a global leader in the development, manufacturing and marketing of microinverters based on their own proprietary, leading-edge solar technology. APS America, representing APS in the US market, is based near Seattle, Washington.

Recent major distribution deals have brought the APS product line to the American Southwest, central California, mountain and mid-Atlantic solar markets.

APS ranked No. 2 in global market share among leading microinverter suppliers by shipments in 2013 (source: GTM Research).

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
