Can the USA still make good solar products?
We live in a world today where folks in America expect anything electronic, to be manufactured overseas.
TV’s, mobile phones, and the lion’s share of solar equipment.
Offshoring costs less, labor is cheaper and we justify this to our clients.
But what if it wasn’t entirely true?
Apple recently expanded their manufacturing capacity inAustin, Texas for their Mac Pro computers.
Jobs are coming back to the USA.
We have skilled people in the USA that can make things as well as it is done internationally. And with the weight of tariff’s on products today, it’s signaling to manufacturers that bringing back jobs to make things here, also takes the risk out of your business strategy.
After all, getting hit with a 25% tariff overnight is hard to pivot from. This is highly disruptive and charging your clients more for your finished product is difficult to pass along to them.
Then there is pride: buying something made in the USA.Supporting local communities. Getting products quickly to market. And as it relates to solar, we also reduce our carbon footprint by not shipping inverters tens of thousands of miles.
Also, made in the USA doesn’t have to be expensive. Products can be price competitive with overseas manufactured items as well. You can still have a highly durable product that will last decades without compromising the investment you will make.
What if there was a way to purchase a microinverter that was designed, manufactured and supported in the USA?
