- APS microinverters join the product offerings of US Solar Distributing and CFM Equipment Distributors in a new agreement between the companies.
Sacamento-based CFM is a top distributor of HVAC systems, with locations in Northern California and Nevada, and also offers solar products through those channels. Its subsidiary US Solar deals exclusively in photovoltaics, and works directly with independent solar contractors through locations in California, Hawaii and New Jersey.
Thomas Nelson, APS vice president for sales, said the agreement strengthens APS' position in key markets and adds two knowledgeable partners to the growing distribution channel.
"US Solar Distributing and CFM Equipment are a well-respected presence in the national PV market, and we're proud to partner with them," Nelson said.
CFM Equipment Distributors was founded more than 30 years ago and later spun off US Solar as an independent division, with a goal of providing professional contractors with a "one-stop" supply resource.
The companies offer complete lines of photovoltaic equipment, along with design and engineering services, professional training, and same- or next-day shipping throughout North America.
APS was founded in Silicon Valley in 2009, and is now a global leader in the development, manufacturing and marketing of microinverters based on their own proprietary, leading-edge solar technology. APS America, representing APS in the US market, is based near Seattle, Washington.
Recent major distribution deals have brought the APS product line to the American Southwest, central California, mountain and mid-Atlantic solar markets.
