WHY WE CHOOSE SOLARWORLD PANELS FOR OUR SOLAR INSTALLATIONS
The White House goes solar
A 6.3-kilowatt American-made SolarWorld system on the White House roof.
After four years of permitting issues, scheduling conflicts, international conflicts, labor and union negotiations, and two Secretaries of Energy, the White House has finally done it. The country’s most powerful address is drawing power from the sun.
White House official said the panels demonstrate that historic buildings can incorporate solar energy and energy efficiency upgrades, and that the panels are estimated to pay for themselves in energy savings within eight years.
Technology Innovations Mean Higher Performance
SolarWorld leads the industry in solar technology advancements. We continually push the limits to attract, capture and harness every ray of sunlight, then convert this sunlight into sustainable, usable energy. Some call our commitment to technological advancement an obsession. We think the superior performance of our solar panels speaks for itself. At SolarWorld, good enough is never good enough, which means we never stop innovating—or dreaming.
SolarWorld’s energy conversion technology is a beacon of light that is guiding the future of solar. We work tirelessly to increase the amount of light we convert into energy, and decrease the number of electrons that recombine or escape. The result is the highest possible energy conversion rate and maximum solar performance.
From precise lasers and meticulous material selection to custom cell design, we make sure no electron is left behind.
