PAONIA, Colo., – Solar Energy International (SEI) is excited to announce its collaboration with Panasonic Corporation of North America as a kilowatt-level  industry sponsor through SEI’s Industry Sponsorship Program. SEI is a nonprofit training organization which offers cutting-edge solar and renewable energy training to the solar industry leadership and workforce. With over 70,000 alumni worldwide, nearly 30 years of experience, and over 100-course sessions offered each year, SEI is a leader in solar training throughout the field.

Panasonic’s 3-year sponsorship of the SEI program is expected to increase brand visibility and product recognition among current and  future customers through SEI’s broad alumni network. With nearly 5 million reached via social media each year, SEI’s network engages experienced solar professionals and the next generation renewable energy workforce on a global scale.

Panasonic’s high efficiency HIT®+ modules provide among the world’s lowest temperature coefficients and degradation rates, and  are engineered to perform at peak efficiency for decades. Offering a portfolio to fit a wide variety roof sizes and shapes, Panasonic modules provide homes with the key components of a solar system: energy savings and long-term performance in a simple, streamlined design. The modules are backed by Panasonic’s century of stability, including Panasonic’s comprehensive TripleGuard warranty which covers performance, parts and labor for 25 years.

“Panasonic recognizes that the key to solar power adoption is through education, so that customers understand their solar energy options and the process around an installation, said Mukesh Sethi, general manager Panasonic Solar Group. “We are proud to support SEI in training the industry workforce to help forward-thinking businesses, government agencies, and homeowners make the decision to go solar; and look forward to reaching new audiences together in building an eco-responsible planet and better world.”
