In order to be centrally located, PV Hardware moves its North American headquarters to Sacramento, California. This is the state where the company began its journey in the photovoltaic sector and where it now houses the new Demo Tracker Training Facility and Safe Harbor storage location. PVH currently has a pipeline of more than 2 GW throughout the United States with the majority of installations being on the West Coast.
This expansión, as indicated by the United States Country Manager, Kevin Allgood, “is the natural step to continue increasing our growth for the área of the country where we have had the greatest influence”. The new location will serve as both an office and a demonstration center. PVH will be making its entire catalog of solar trackers and fixed-tilt racking structures available to owners, utilities, installers, developers, IPPs and EPC contractors, who will be able to see first-hand the technology and advantages PVH offers in terms of assembly, efficiency and sustainability.
PVH is the third largest supplier of solar trackers and structures worlwide and strengthens its presence in one of the most solar active countries in the world today. According to the latest report published by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), the United States has more than two million projects and it is estimated that during this year it will increase its installed capacity by 42 GW, 13,5 GW being solar. It should also be noted that California is the state that has accumulated the most renewable energy, due in large part to the growth experienced in the solar + storage sector, which is rapidly diversifying in the state markets.
