Panasonic Announces New Solar Panel Installer Program

• Panasonic’s new program offers two levels of benefits, “Authorized Installer” and “Premium Installer” • Participating solar installers will have access to a variety of assets provided by Panasonic to help increase sales

Newark, NJ (June 20th, 2016) — Panasonic Eco Solutions North America today announced the introduction of their new solar panel installer program for participating installers. The new program will allow these installers to take advantage of valuable marketing, training and partner support initiatives to help develop their business. The continued growth of the HIT® brand prompted this new program, as participating installers will now have a wealth of resources at their disposal to advance sales of the solar panel HIT®. This program is comprised of two separate categories, "Authorized Installer" and "Premium Installer", each of which come with distinct benefits.


"Authorized Installers" will earn a number of benefits, beginning with a financing program that will provide increased fiscal flexibility and funding for installers. In addition, participating installers will have access to advanced sales lead generation courtesy of the Panasonic Solar Website. The "Authorized Installer Program" includes the Panasonic HIT® Starter Pack, which consists of HIT apparel and customer brochures, as well as training and workshops to augment the installer's knowledge of Panasonic HIT® products. This program will also feature the installing company's name on the Panasonic Solar Installer Finder.

"Premium Installers" will earn the same benefits as the "Authorized Installers", plus exclusive business opportunities, such as joint press releases and marketing materials shared by Panasonic and the installer. These installers will also have access to joint public relations initiatives with Panasonic as well as preference in generated leads.

The Panasonic solar panel HIT® have been mass produced since 1997, and since its inception, they undergo a rigid performance testing under all conditions to guarantee safe efficient operation. With its 15-year workmanship and 25-year output warranties, this gives both homeowners and installers peace of mind. This new installer program is the next step in the growth of the HIT®, and in the continued development of high-efficiency panels in the residential solar industry.
