Green Solar Technologies today announced the achievement of being named a Platinum Installer by SolarWorld, one of the world’s largest and most respected solar panel manufacturers. With more than 25 years of experience in the solar energy industry, Green Solar Technologies operates in 19 states and is considered a pioneer in the solar energy industry.
“Green Solar Technologies is a tremendous addition to SolarWorld’s Platinum Installer program,” said Shane Messer, U.S. vice president of sales and marketing for SolarWorld. “Green Solar Technologies has proven to be a premier solar installer time and time again, and we’re thankful for the trust placed in SolarWorld to produce the highest quality solar panels here in America.”
SolarWorld’s Platinum Installer program is reserved for select solar installation companies that meet and exceed stringent criteria for installation quality, business operations and customer service. Platinum Installers are held to the highest standards, ensuring homeowners enjoy maximal benefits from the solar systems and the knowledge they have supported renewable energy and American manufacturing at once.
“We are extremely excited about receiving this certification from SolarWorld,” said Edward Harner, COO at Green Solar Technologies. “Very few installers are able to meet the quality installation standards required by SolarWorld, and being awarded the Platinum Installer status is quite an honor.”
“To have one of the biggest panel manufacturers in the world certify us should matter a great deal to our customers because it means that SolarWorld trusts us to be good brand ambassadors. We feel that we are aligned with SolarWorld in its efforts to provide the best product to customers; Green Solar’s product is the overall project experience, from customer engagement all the way to the actual installation of the solar,” Harner continued.
“Ever since we began as a business, we’ve aligned with only the best equipment manufacturers. SolarWorld has always been our partner because it makes the best panels in the world and, almost as important, it makes its panels right here in the U.S. in Oregon. We just feel more confident with an American-made panel because we can trust in its quality-control standards,” Harner said.
“The solar industry has changed drastically in the past few years. There are more and more small mom-and-pop operations doing solar, and it’s very important for customers to do their due diligence on the installer. Some of these people have no experience installing solar; they’re just electricians!” Harner said. “We’ve been doing solar for a long time and have always required extensive training for all of our installers. We feel confident that we are the best solar installers in the country. Period.”
