Area Development
Siser USA LLC, an Italian-owned solar panel installation and PV developer firm, located its U.S. headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina. The firm plans to hire 10 employees in the next three years, including engineers, designers and architects.

Specializing in comprehensive energy solutions for businesses, Siser was incorporated last year to assist commercial clients in all aspects of solar installation, the Charlotte Chamber said. The company’s services include plant design; selection of equipment for use in the photovoltaic installation; permitting and license application assistance; financing support; installation; and maintenance. Additionally, Siser is an authorized representative for photovoltaic equipment, including AC/DC inverters, modules, racking and mounting systems, wires, cables and TLC controls.

“Siser expanded to Charlotte because of excellent infrastructure, particularly the international airport; an attractive business environment and convenient time zone to Europe; affordable living costs; and high quality of life,” said Dr. Guido Barbi, president of Siser. “Our partnership with Chinese solar panel manufacturer, Jetion Solar, was an important reason as well.”
