TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Silfab Solar, North America’s Number One PV module manufacturer, announced today a long-term partnership with Auric Solar, a leading solar installer in Utah and Idaho, and distributor Russell Pacific to supply Auric with all-black, high-quality modules and delivery of 15 megawatts over the next few months.
The Auric contract is the latest for Silfab, which produces high-quality, high efficiency modules that are an ideal fit for homeowners and commercial operations looking to get more solar with less modules. Auric Solar, recently named as one of Inc. magazine’s 500 fastest growing companies, is purchasing Silfab’s latest 300Wp module that the company debuted at last month’s Solar Power International conference. Distributor Russell Pacific (RP) handles all aspects of Auric’s module procurement and was a key partner in the deal.
“Auric focuses on North American made quality components, exceptional service and a world class solar experience that we have pioneered and are constantly perfecting. Aligning with partners who have a track record of success and a long-term minded leadership group fits perfectly within our company’s philosophy and practices. As we look to enter the next phase of Auric’s future, the clear long-term choice for us was Silfab,” said Jess Phillips, principal of Auric Solar, which currently has the most positive reviews in America.
The Auric agreement further strengthens Silfab’s position as the best North American made module manufacturer. The vertical-integrated structure and 30-year global experience in solar systems assures suppliers and retailers that the trustworthy, bankable company is using only the best materials and methods to produce modules.
“Companies continue to select Silfab because of our North American location – which means quicker delivery, best-in-class warranties and high-touch customer service,” said Geoffrey Atkins, Silfab’s head of development. “Silfab is excited to partner with another customer-focused, high-quality solar provider such as Auric.”
“RP ranks and selects manufacturers on three key criteria: Leading market products, well managed and long-term focused growth plans, and price-to-value ratio,” said Jay Miles, Vice President of Russell Pacific. “Silfab hit highest marks on all three areas making it the module manufacturer we wanted for Auric for the next stage of their explosive growth.”
Silfab’s unique designs and manufacturing techniques result in modules that have fewer components for faster installation and improved system balance, aesthetic designs, maximum and sustained power performance lasting for decades after installation, and more.
