Panasonic Solar Promotes First Group of Authorized Installers to Premium Level

Enhanced partnership with select solar installers aims to provide benefits to grow their business

Newark, NJ (July 25, 2017) — Panasonic Corporation of North America today announced the promotion of several authorized installers of HIT® solar modules to the exclusive "Premium Installer" status. Panasonic unveiled this program last year to provide valuable assets to exceptional partners who meet Panasonic's high standard of excellence. As a high-efficiency residential solar panel provider with a strong commitment to sustainable energy, Panasonic is always striving to provide customers with best-in-class service, a desire that is shared by each of these Premium installers.


Panasonic's Solar Installer program is comprised of "Authorized" and "Premium" installers. Premium installers are those companies that have completed a minimum requirement of HIT® module installations and have met an annual wattage target. These installers also promote Panasonic as their primary brand of solar modules, and they receive a range of benefits from Panasonic to enhance their offerings to customers.

Premium installers will be part of continuous efforts with Panasonic to promote the HIT® brand among the installers' area of operation. They will receive leads generated through Panasonic's website, where the installer will be listed as premium. Premium installers are also the beneficiary of cooperative marketing funds provided by Panasonic, at twice the level of funds provided for Authorized Installers, to help grow their business and attract even more customers.

"The growth of Panasonic HIT® modules across North America has allowed us to partner with several exemplary solar panel installers who share the same dedication to quality customer service and superior product performance as we do," said Mukesh Sethi, Group Manager of the Solar Division of Panasonic Corporation North America. "We are thrilled to offer additional benefits to these valued partners and we look forward to working with them for years to come as we expand our presence in the North American residential solar market."

The new Premium Installers come from both the West and East coasts, and are listed below:

• Sullivan Solar Power - San Diego, CA
• LA Solar Group, Inc. - Van Nuys, CA
• Westhaven Solar - Santa Cruz, CA
• Sierra Pacific Home & Comfort - Rancho Cordova, CA
• Diablo Solar - Martinez, CA
• RevoluSun - Burlington, MA
• SUNation - Ronkonkoma, NY
• SunRay Solar - Concord, NH
• NJ Solar Power - Bayville, NJ

Panasonic will aim to expand the reach of the Solar Installer program and bring industry leading companies into these mutually beneficial partnerships.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
