  15. Cinnamon Solar is proud to install solar panels from Auxin Solar (based in San Jose), Sunniva (Georgia) and SolarWorld (Oregon) — all manufacturers with a strong commitment to U.S.-made products. Auxin’s new 100,000 square foot factory in San Jose is highly automated, resulting in relatively low costs compared to other manufacturers. As a result, Cinnamon Solar’s pricing for a rooftop system using U.S. made solar panels is almost always less than a system using panels from other countries. Nevertheless, we do provide options for different panel manufacturers, particularly when our customers want a very high efficiency panel or are extremely cost conscious. Over the years we’ve used solar panels from factories all over the world; our experience with Chinese, Japanese and Korean panels has been excellent—reliable performance at a good price. We would prefer panels made in the U.S.A., but the prices for U.S. made solar panels were too high. The reason is that the solar panel manufacturing process has historically been very labor-intensive until now. http://cinnamonsolar.com/usa-made-solar-panels/

  4. InvisibleSun Energy is a locally owned and operated full service provider of rooftop and ground mounted solar electric systems proudly serving the greater San Francisco Bay Area. Our mission is to be recognized for delivering an individualized and non-rushed service to homeowners with energy needs of all sizes and become a company you could recommend to friends and neighbors. The inspiration for creating InvisibleSun Energy was my observation that many homeowners are not always offered the comprehensive, unbiased service they deserve when it comes to going solar. With the growing number of products and services available I felt it was time to create a different way. From start to finish we work with you to explain and provide the most cost effective solution, maximize your renewable energy potential and deliver a great return on your investment. Going solar is typically a big decision, and we recognize that a happy customer is the key to our reputation. InvisibleSun Energy cuts through the noise and provides the hands on, personalized approach needed in an increasingly crowded and unnecessarily rushed solar market.
