Companies with diverse ownership work in every aspect and vertical within the solar industry, from manufacturers and project developers, to installers and financiers. To strengthen the DEIJ in the solar and storage industry, SEIA launched the Diverse Suppliers Database last year to connect buyers throughout the supply chain with diverse-owned businesses.
Join SEIA for a virtual networking event to meet with and learn more about diverse-owned businesses your company can partner with in the solar industry.
The Basics of Solar Power
The process of manufacturing solar cells begins with the production of ingots of semiconductor materials. These are then cut into thin wafers and connected to metal strips. These are then placed into cells, and subsequently, arranged into solar panels. Once assembled, solar panels generate electricity. The process is known as solar power, and is now a lucrative industry that is growing rapidly around the world. Among the benefits of solar energy are its low operating costs and increased energy security.
