Silicon Energy states that they have designed an integrated solar product that not only outperforms other products on the market, but challenges the notion that investment grade is good enough in these changing times. They describe themselves as being committed to sustainable business practices and products and manufactures in the USA. Materials are sourced locally, regionally, nationally, or, as a last resort, internationally from countries with forward-looking environmental policies. Employees are paid fair wages with benefits. Silicon Energy is truly an example of a company focused on the new economy: the fusion of social and environmental responsibility with financial sustainability.
