MORE THAN A MANUFACTURER,
BETTER THAN A DISTRIBUTOR

THE UNIVERSAL ADVANTAGE

Universal Solar procures Tier 1 solar modules and other major system components for large-volume buyers including developers and installers, at prices that can move your solar project forward. Long-term relationships with many overseas manufacturers allow us to purchase directly from the factory and provide modules to our clients at prices lower than what many manufacturers’ sales representatives offer. We speak the factories’ language. Literally. And that’s good for our clients.

MORE THAN A MANUFACTURER

Most large-scale solar developers and installers have experienced at least one supply chain interruption that threatened or derailed a project: Manufacturers’ reps reneging on pricing or delivery date. Product no longer available when you thought you had a commitment.

Universal has a more reliable supply chain than the U.S. arms of many manufacturers, because of our long-term, direct relationships with the module factories. We can obtain panels when others can’t. We won’t sell your product out from under you if
we get a bigger or better offer. We won’t change your price or delivery date.

A BETTER PROCUREMENT PROCESS

Our procurement model eliminates layers of overhead and the markups that occur in every stage of the typical procurement process, even within the same manufacturing company.
