Panasonic Corp. of North America has signed on as a kilowatt-level industry sponsor through Solar Energy International’s Industry Sponsorship Program. SEI is a nonprofit training organization which offers solar and renewable energy training to industry leadership and workforce. With over 70,000 alumni worldwide, nearly 30 years of experience and 100+ course sessions offered each year, SEI is a leader in solar training throughout the field.
“SEI is so grateful for the sponsorship from Panasonic,” said Christopher Turek, SEI director of marketing and communications. “More than 70,000 students worldwide have looked to SEI as a resource to begin or advance their solar careers. As students progress through our class sessions and into the field, we hope that Panasonic products continue to be a part of their careers.”
Panasonic’s three-year sponsorship of the SEI program is expected to increase brand visibility and product recognition among current and future customers through SEI’s broad alumni network. With nearly 5 million reached via social media each year, SEI’s network engages experienced solar professionals and the next generation renewable energy workforce on a global scale.
Panasonic’s high-efficiency HIT modules will be used in SEI training courses.
“Panasonic recognizes that the key to solar power adoption is through education, so that customers understand their solar energy options and the process around an installation,” said Mukesh Sethi, general manager Panasonic Solar Group. “We are proud to support SEI in training the industry workforce to help forward-thinking businesses, government agencies, and homeowners make the decision to go solar; and look forward to reaching new audiences together in building an eco-responsible planet and better world.”
