Deep Patel, Gigawatt CEO, hailed the agreement that brings the APS microinverter line to Gigawatt's portfolio of top-quality solar offerings.

"APS has emerged from the solar pack with forward-thinking and popular microinverter products," Patel said. "Their line is an excellent addition to our distribution channel. Our customers will find them reliable and easy to work with."

Since its inception in 2006, Gigawatt has served customers worldwide including the U.S. Department of Defense, the Federal Aviation Administration, the United States Marine Corps., and the City of Los Angeles.

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.
