SEIA Releases Diverse Suppliers Database

June 4, 2021
The free platform will highlight minority, women, disabled, veteran and LGBTQ+ owned businesses operating in the solar and storage industries.

The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) recently released the Diverse Suppliers Database, a free platform that will highlight and elevate minority, women, disabled, veteran and LGBTQ+ owned businesses operating in the solar and storage industries. More than 120 diverse companies are listed in the database, and the platform will remain open for submissions

The database is designed to help solar companies more thoughtfully consider their supplier networks and partnerships. The businesses listed in the database represent a variety of companies, including solar and storage installers, roofers, construction companies, electrical contractors and other vendors or service providers in the solar and storage sectors.

“The $30 billion solar and storage industry is filled with tremendous opportunities, but our future success depends on our ability to expand our reach and welcome more diverse businesses to the industry,” said Abigail Ross Hopper, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA). “SEIA’s supplier diversity database will create business connections for company leaders across America and throughout the solar industry supply chain. Solar companies are eager to implement business practices that create a more inclusive and diverse solar industry and this tool can support that goal.”
