These four states are among the nation’s leaders for PV adoption. According to GTM Research and Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), Massachusetts was the eighth-largest PV market in 2016. Minnesota was the 12th-largest market in the nation, New York 13th, and Connecticut 21st.
GameChange will supply its MaxSpan Pile Driven Systems, which features racking that locks up and does not shake prior to module installation, a company statement said. “Other vendors rely on the module frames to lock up the racking which ultimately leads to extra stress on the modules themselves,” said Andrew Worden, CEO of the company. “Customers are attracted by the sturdy construction of the GameChange MaxSpan Pile Driven Systems. GameChange’s superior quality has led to our historical track record of zero structural field failures, which is unique in the industry,” he added.
In one time study, GameChange found that using its pile driven system, six percent of the total installation time was required for the pilings. Riveted racking consumed 40 percent of the total installation time, and panel attachment accounted for most of the remaining time. The study revealed that a 20-person installation team could erect over 1.7 MW of solar in a week’s time.
GameChange recently announced that controlled an estimated 20 percent U.S. market share for fixed-tilt ground mount racking in 2016, a five percent market share for flat roof commercial racking, and that the company has jointed the of Top 10 single axis trackers vendors during 2016. The statistics were compiled by a market analyst that GameChange could not mention by name. GameChange has over 1.4 GW of PV installed, including 2016 sales of 88 MW of trackers, Worden said.
