We got way out of the box, and looked at lowest cost standardized manufacturing processes to minimize cost of fabrication.
We started with a blank piece of paper and said, “How do we do this with the least number of parts, and make the simplest, strongest, easiest to assemble, lowest cost solar racks in the industry?” We then spent endless hours in the field working with solar installers, electricians, developers, and many experts to design our proprietary systems.
Our products are manufactured in the USA. This ensures not only superior quality but also nationwide reach. Our products are manufactured to meet ASME and ASCE standards.
GameChange provides stamped permit drawings including ballast calculations and embedment depths according to ASCE 7-05 and/or SEAOC as relevant. All systems are wind tunnel tested by CPP and rated to 150mph wind speed and 90psf snow load.
We realize that word of mouth is the best way to grow a business, and that not only superior products, but also unparalleled customer service are the keys to success.
GameChange is backed by the financial strength of Barron Group Holdings which has diversified holdings with significant assets and positive operating cash flow from operations.
Reducing Total Racking and Installation Cost
Quality and cost of racking is not the only consideration in selecting a vendor with today's increasing labor costs. Rapid installation time, integrated grounding and wire management are critical to reducing total installed cost. GameChange has reduced both overall system cost and installation time.
“My roots as an investment fund manager have helped me understand what solar investors require: total system cost reduction while meeting the demands for bankability.”
Andrew Worden, GameChange Solar CEO,
Stated in the Interview with SolarPro April 2014
Investment Background in Clean-Tech Metal FabricatorsOur team leadership has invested over $480,000,000, heavily in metal fabrication companies. This gives us a strong working knowledge of cost effective scale metal manufacturing processes.
Our Group Companies Built 10 Solar Power Plants and Learned the Solar Business
Experiencing that Racking Systems were Overpriced, Overcomplicated and Slow to Install, GameChange was Founded to do it BetterAs these plants were built, we saw that PV mounting structures were too expensive, complicated and slow to install and needed better integrated wire management and grounding. GameChange Solar was started in 2012 to provide the most cost effective high quality and fast installing solar racking systems. We have built a superior engineering team, leveraged our legacy skillset in solar system installation, design and metal fabrication, and developed the best designed racking systems in the industry.
We have increased Genius Tracker™ single axis tracker manufacturing capacity to over 4 GW annually with the addition of multiple high speed stamping and roll forming lines in North Carolina, New York, Michigan and New Jersey. These lines are capable of precision automated production of quality parts in large volumes that allow per part processing costs to be minimal. They also are efficiently designed to minimize scrap loss and further reduce cost of production, which in the face of rapidly increasing steel prices is a critical consideration. Strict quality control and manufacturing process techniques typically utilized in the automotive industry are being applied by GameChange for superior quality and high capacity production.
SOLAR TRACKER DESIGN ENGINEERING SERVICE SPECIALIZED FOR UNDULATING GROUND
GameChange Solar provides a value added service for the Genius Tracker™ single axis tracker to be utilizable on undulating and sloping ground conditions. The service entails a detailed analysis of the tracker system layout in AutoCAD® Civil 3D®. 2D slices are then analyzed for proper tracker slope design to minimize or eliminate any grading requirements, often utilizing extra long extra piles in valleys so the trackers can span rapid and significant undulations while minimizing or completely eliminating the need for costly grading.
Scott Van Pelt, Sr. Director of Engineering at GameChange Solar, stated: ” We are constantly looking for new ways to arm our clients with the information and tools they need to install their tracker system as quickly and cost effectively as possible. By performing this in-depth topography analysis early in the design process, GameChange Solar’s engineers can reduce or eliminate grading even on sites with challenging terrain.”
