Panasonic Eco Solutions of North America today announced the expansion of the Panasonic Residential Solar Business Premium Installer program for Panasonic solar modules HIT® with Sunluxand Solaroo Energy promoted to Premium level.
In January 2015, Sunlux founders had a radical idea – solar energy should be just as easy as traditional electricity. Their strategy of putting customers and employees first paid off quickly, resulting in the company growing from nothing to 12 employees and $2.2 million in sales in just one year. After its first full year in business, Sunlux moved its headquarters into a brand-new building in Ontario, CA, allowing them to become fully integrated with sales, design, engineering and installation under one roof.
"We are honored to be selected as Panasonic's Premium Installer," said Josip Benko, CEO, Sunlux. "This partnership allows us to continue providing world class products and excellent customer service, which is what we are known for."

Solaroo Energy deploys its educated sales team, award-winning management team and engineers to provide customers in Utah, Idaho and Colorado with exactly what they need as they make the move to solar technology.
"We appreciate the recognition from Panasonic and their commitment to Solaroo and our continued growth in the solar industry. Panasonic has proven their commitment to the U.S. solar industry, enabling our team to deliver high-quality panels and an industry-leading warranty to Solaroo customers in all our markets," said Kelly Curtis, CEO, Solaroo Energy. "Customers making long-term investments like solar deserve companies like Panasonic and Solaroo who have a long-term approach to doing business."
Launched in the U.S. in 2016, the Panasonic Solar Premium Installer program provides value-added benefits and business opportunities to over 125 partners who meet Panasonic's high standard of excellence.
