A silfab machine printing solar panels


At Silfab Solar, our mission is to make a difference in the world by reducing carbon emissions and improving access to clean energy with every module we make.


Silfab Solar is the North American manufacturing leader in the design and development of ultra-high-efficiency, premium-quality solar panels. Silfab leverages more than 40 years of solar experience and operates out of facilities in Bellingham and Burlington, Washington and Toronto, Canada. All of our locations feature fully automated, ISO certified production lines and utilize just-in-time manufacturing to deliver millions of North American-made top-performing solar panels designed specifically for the North American market.


In 2010, a collaboration of international solar investors saw an opportunity to develop a manufacturing-focused solar PV company that incorporated the latest in technology with the expertise of precision automated manufacturing. Drawing from decades of experience and from working closely with local automotive and robotics companies, a specialized solar manufacturing company was established.

Silfab Solar was built on the extensive knowledge of our founders and a vertically-integrated network of partners that spans the entire photovoltaic supply chain.

With a business philosophy of supporting local customers as partners, our founders incorporated modern manufacturing systems, innovative product development and process engineering adopted from various projects.

Silfab’s founding investors include Franco Traverso, an Italian pioneer in the solar energy industry and Pan Asia Solar Ltd., whose principals co-founded some of the most successful PV businesses, including the subsidiary solar cell manufacturer Sunrise Global Solar Energy and Sino-American Silicon Products Inc., a successful publicly traded company and provider of premium silicon wafers to the PV and semi-conductor industries.


Over the past ten years, we have advanced from a commercial and residential OEM manufacturer for other Tier 1 companies to designing, engineering and manufacturing our own premium brand of high-efficiency solar panels for installers, distributors and businesses across North America who demand maximum power density, premium quality, a trusted warranty and local customer support.


Silfab Solar operates multiple automated ISO 9001-2015 quality certified production lines utilizing just-in-time manufacturing in all our facilities. Every step of the process is fully automated, requiring limited human interaction for only quality control and custom PV solutions. Silfab applies superior knowledge and attention to detail to ensure our PV panels are top performers in quality, durability and reliability.


Silfab Solar leverages over 40 years of worldwide solar experience and best-in-class technologies to produce the highest-rated solar panels from facilities in the state of Washington and Toronto, Canada.

We are dedicated in the integration of superior manufacturing processes and innovations such as Bifacial and Back-contact technologies to ensure that our partners receive the latest in solar innovation.
