SnapNrack Hits 1 GW of U.S. Deployment

“This milestone highlights eight years and more than 150,000 installations worth of knowledge and experience that SnapNrack has in the engineering, manufacturing, design and deployment of solar mounting solutions,” SnapNrack says. The company now also has the solar industry wherewithal of parent Sunrun behind its sales force.

In June, SnapNrack doubled its limited warranty on its Series 100 Roof Mount and Series 200 Ground Mount products from 10 to 20 years at no additional cost to customers. Last year, the company forged a one-year supply agreement with Trinity Solar, a designer and integrator of solar electric systems in the Northeast United States. The 100 UL Residential Roof Mount System will be the main racking system for Trinity Solar installations throughout New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts. SnapNrack says.

“Our success is a direct result of our loyal distribution partners and installers that put SnapNrack product into use every day, they are our greatest source of learning. We truly value their input and appreciate their support”, said Chris Oestreich, Sr. Director, SnapNrack. “We were developed in the field by veteran solar installers and since our inception, focusing on the needs of the installer has been the foundation of SnapNrack”.

SnapNrack, owned by Sunrun, produces residential solar mounting solutions engineered to simplify the process of installing solar modules, shorten installation times, and lower installation costs to maximize productivity and profits for customers. SnapNrack residential solar mounting solutions are designed for composition shingle, tile, metal and flat membrane roof types, as well as ground systems.

Sunrun, a leading solar PPA provider, acquired the residential divisions of REC Solar, AEE Solar, and SnapNrack in 2014. In its 2015 annual report, Sunrun said, “(Our) platform includes processes and software, as well as fulfillment through AEE Solar, racking through SnapNrack and acquisition marketing through Clean Energy Experts LLC. We believe our platform empowers new market entrants and smaller industry participants to profitably serve our large and underpenetrated market without making the significant investments in technology and infrastructure required to compete effectively against established industry players by improving efficiencies and driving down system-wide costs.”

Sunrun also said, “As of December 31, 2015, we operated the second largest fleet of residential solar energy systems in the United States, with approximately 111,000 customers across 15 states, as well as the District of Columbia. We have deployed an aggregate of 596.2 MW as of December 31, 2015…(when) our estimated nominal contracted payments remaining was approximately $2.4 billion, and our estimated retained value was $1.5 billion.”
