SAN RAMON, Calif., Jan. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- LONGi Solar, world leading manufacturer of high-efficiency mono-crystalline solar cells and modules, today announced it has been added to the approved vendor list of Sunnova Energy Corporation, the leading privately-held U.S. residential solar and battery storage service provider. Through this new partnership, Sunnova's network of local installers can offer both style and substance to residential customers across the United States with LONGi's 60-cell LR6-60PB family of black-on-black modules with power density up to 315Wp.
Before being selected to join Sunnova's approved vendor list, both LONGi's technology and bankability underwent a competitive due diligence process.
