Greenbelt Solar - What installation equipment we use?
Good question? So, what DO we use?

We only use North American made quality components and we do not compromise on that. We do not use Chinese made solar panels, or Taiwan, or any other country outside of North America.

Everything from solar panels and inverters to wire and junction boxes is Made in USA, installed proudly by competent local crew. What are these components?

What brand of solar panels does Greenbelt Solar use?
Axitec logoThe most important (and most visible) part of every solar job is the panel. In each and every installation Greenbelt Solar only uses Axitec (made in Germany), Suniva (made in Atlanta, GA) and SolarWorld (made in Hillsboro, OR) solar panels.

We have used other pretty good panels such as Trina Solar, Suntech, LG and Renesola before and have had great results as well, but 3 brands above are our main solar panels. They give a rock solid performance inside a sturdy built panel with unparalelled warranty, year after year.

Why? Because they are the best on the market and top the lists of performance measures year after year.

They are USA/German made with highest quality components and rigorous testing exceeding all codes and regulations. Financially, the companies are on solid footing and will be around a long time to honor their warranty and continue to innovate and make quality products.

Why are Axitec, Suniva and SolarWorld panels the best, in our opinion? What makes them "the best"? (COMING SOON...)
