With solar installation booming in the U.S., a growing number of consumers are requesting American-made solar panels for their homes, and Buffalo Solar Solutions Inc. is happy to meet that request!
To date, about 13 gigawatts of solar electric capacity have been installed nationwide — enough to power over two million households. Simultaneously, 82 percent of people who responded to a recent solar survey said they support using solar panels made on American soil.
“As a Buffalo-based company, we believe in giving back to our community and we do so in a number of ways, such as supporting local nonprofit organizations like South Buffalo Alive,” said Alicia Uebelhoer, co-owner of Buffalo Solar Solutions. “As a U.S.-based company, we also believe in the importance of using American-made products and supporting other businesses both local and across the country whenever possible.”
According to industry experts, here are the top reasons that homeowners prefer solar panels from American manufacturers:
• Quality and reliability. A residential solar system is, effectively, a power plant installed on a home rooftop, warrantied for 25 years and expected to last 30 to 40 years. Consumers trust American solar manufacturers to stand behind their product guarantees because these companies rank high in measures of quality, responsiveness to warranty claims, accessibility for customer service and compliance with safety requirements.
• Sustainability. Sustainably minded Americans see added value in purchasing American-made solar panels that are produced according to stringent environmental, labor and quality standards, and reduce environmental impact.
“As individuals and as a company, our passion for a cleaner environment is second to none,” added Tyler Uebelhoer, co-owner of Buffalo Solar Solutions. “Providing a clean energy alternative for Western New York homeowners — backed by our outstanding customer service — is our top priority.”
• Energy independence. For the U.S., solar power represents an important tool in achieving energy independence. Just as people believe the nation should not rely on the Middle East for imported oil, many also feel that America should not depend so heavily on foreign nations for solar technology and manufacturing.
• American job creation. The U.S. solar manufacturing industry employs thousands of Americans across the country. Studies show that technology and manufacturing jobs, with comparatively high wages and benefits, are the types of jobs that the U.S. should aspire to create and maintain.
“We started this business in our home three years ago, and today we have a Buffalo-based office and have built an outstanding team of solar professionals,” Tyler Uebelhoer added. “If you have a great work ethic, think well on your feet and you’re great with people, Buffalo Solar Solutions may be a great career move for you.”
