American solar companies turn to OEMs for custom solar panels

Although American solar panel manufacturing is growing and many global brands have set up in the country, the domestic demand far outweighs supply. This often leads to mismatched or unfulfilled orders to needy installers. To ensure contracts are met, some installers might choose to source their own panels and use an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for smaller orders of custom product. There are a few U.S. panel manufacturing plants that also offer space as OEMs, and a number of players take advantage — whether it’s a foreign company wanting to deliver a batch of Made-in-USA product or a small domestic outfit with a unique need. CertainTeed Solar has a network of installation partners that have become accustomed to its high-quality roofing products and want the same in the solar department. Lumos Solar makes beautiful architecture projects with integrated solar that not just anyone can supply.
