In September, GameChange Solar announced that it has been awarded an order for a 100 MW Max-Span post-driven racking system for a project that will be installed in the New England region in late 2016. The company also announced last month that 17 MW of precast ballasted PV ground systems would be installed on five landfills in Massachusetts.
Earlier this month, the company suggested that a tight industry delivery timetable prior to year’s end. GameChange Solar noted that its production for piles only required two to three weeks, and racking required only three to four weeks through year’s end. The company said this production schedule is a service for pile driven racking systems for orders up to 30 MW. For larger orders up to 150MW, production starts at two weeks for piles and three weeks for racking and completes one to three weeks later respectively.
At the time, Derick Botha, VP of Business Development for GameChange , stated: “Many customers have rush requirements for year end and we are standing by with multiple dedicated lines ready to service their important needs.” GameChange’s Solar Max-Span reduce foundation count to as few as 190 per MW.

GameChange Solar announced that it has passed one gigawatt in sales and expects to have substantially over one gigawatt installed by year end 2016. The company owns a number of installers and often provides PPAs to customers. Target customers for these commercial-scale installations include commercial businesses, government entities, real estate developers, schools and universities, and utility companies, among others.
