GameChange ships 85 MW of pile driven solar to North Carolina

GameChange's MaxSpan

Max Johnson, Business Development Associate at GameChange Solar, says: “It is important to see that solar is becoming a growing component of the energy infrastructure in North Carolina. We are honored that our product was chosen for its high quality and rugged composition.”

Earlier this month, GameChange announced that it is adding three roll forming lines in North Carolina. These lines will be operational in the second quarter. The addition of these lines in North Carolina brings GameChange Solar’s domestic production capacity to over 4GW, more than sufficient to handle anticipated domestic 1.5 to 2GW 2017 expected shipments of fixed tilt racking and trackers. GameChange has manufacturing locations on the east coast, the Midwest and the western United States.

Andrew Worden, CEO of GameChange Solar, stated: “With the addition of these three roll forming lines, we have meaningfully increased our manufacturing capacity. We are happy that we can bring important job growth to North Carolina, as well as reduce our already fast delivery timelines to our valued customers in the Southeast.”

GameChange Solar is a manufacturer of fixed tilt and tracker solar racking systems, with over 1.2GW installed. GameChange systems combine “fast install, bankable quality and unbeatable value through superior engineering, innovative design and high volume manufacturing,” the company says.

According to GameChange, among features of the Max-Span system are: the industry’s longest spans and fewest foundations at as few as 190 per MW; articulating purlin connections to navigate up to 15% terrain slopes; supports all poly, glass and thin film modules; I-beam available as alternate foundation; rugged design enables 150 mph wind and 90 psf snow loads; turnkey install, pull test and geotech services available; panels attach rapidly to purlins using rivets or bolts and flange nuts; and 20 men install 1.70MW per week using rivets, 1.53MW per week using bolts.
