Solaria Corporation, a global provider of advanced solar energy products, announced that the company will more than double production capabilities by the end of the year, an increase made possible by $40 million in growth funding from leading strategic and financial investors including well-known solar industry investors T.J. Rodgers and Isidoro Quiroga, both of whom have joined Solaria’s Board of Directors.

“One of the fastest-growing areas in renewable energy is premium residential solar, where the focus is on efficiency, aesthetics, and value,” said Solaria CEO Suvi Sharma.  “Solaria’s Pure Black™ PowerXT panels have emerged as a first choice in the premium segment, exceeding our expectations and creating tremendous demand for our products. Now we’ll be able to satisfy our customers while maintaining excellent customer service.”  

Rodgers said, “I have the privilege of seeing and evaluating a wide range of solar technologies, and it quickly became clear to me that Solaria’s approach is unparalleled. Solaria pays attention to what is most important in residential solar products: quality, performance, and aesthetics. I’m pleased to support Solaria as they increase their market share worldwide and lead the way towards energy independence.”

High power density allows solar installers to maximize power and energy yield on customer roofs. And shade resistant technology keeps Solaria PowerXT performing when other panels have ceased generating power.
