Emergent Solar Energy uses American-Made solar components

The renewable energy industry is a competitive, albeit fledgling sector in the national economy. The United States solar adoption rate is growing as our energy policy shifts from fossil fuels to more environmentally friendly sources of energy. Some European and Asian countries, specifically China, were early adopters of solar resources and have built a large manufacturing capacity in their domestic facilities at labor wage and quality rates substantially lower than their American counterparts. This created a situation wherein American solar companies had to choose between cheaper foreign solar modules or more expensive American-made modules and pass this cost on to the buyers.

Up until recently, the choice between imported panels or domestic ones was a cost-based business decision, and it was rare to find a solar installer using American solar components.

This was a failure of policy, leadership, and patriotism and had a devastatingly negative affect on American solar manufacturing. Most of our domestic solar manufacturers had to either file bankruptcy or cease to exist.


Things have now changed. The economy has improved. Interest in solar is increasing. Solar implementation costs are plummeting. Solar energy production is now a serious competitor with fossil fuel energy on most metrics.

The U.S. import policy on foreign solar components has improved, and now domestic solar manufacturing is returning and starting to compete again. This is all very good news for America, our solar industry, and solar adopters.

We believe that it is our duty to support and protect our domestic solar industry and the thousands of workers it employs. We believe that America makes a superior product, and competes on price, warranty, and quality. We at Emergent Solar Energy will do all that we can to support the newly invigorated American solar manufacturing sector and will buy and build our projects with their products. When you buy from us you have the peace of mind of knowing all of the components in your solar project are American made, most of which are sourced right here in Indiana and the Midwest. Our America-Made solar policy not only supports our American workforce and our economy, it decreases our need for foreign energy from oil, and spurs American clean energy independence.
