About Us

GameChange Solar is driven by its mission to repower the planet with clean solar energy. We do our part by driving fixed tilt racking and tracker equipment costs lower. With over 10 GW sold, GameChange systems combine fast install, bankable quality and unbeatable value through superior engineering, innovative design and high volume manufacturing.

We have over 20 GW of global manufacturing capacity. Our production 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.

What We Do

Inspired to leverage superior design, technology, and manufacturing innovation to lower solar energy cost, we have made a strategic decision to start GameChange Solar. We strive to lower the cost of installation without compromising solar racking strength, through innovative design that emphasizes simplicity and ease of installation.​

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.
We utilize the highest quality materials, for long term durability and to meet extreme environmental conditions, such as stainless steel, 5052 aluminum alloy, and high grade steel with enhanced galvinization coatings.

Design loads according to local building codes: ASCE 7, NBC, Eurocode, AS1170, GB 50009

CPP Wind Tunnel Testing

At GameChange Solar our systems have integrated grounding utilizing proprietary GameChange Intertek UL 467 approved grounding devices, Intertek UL 2703/3703 approvals and numerous U.S. patents that protect our innovative solar tracker, post ground, and ballasted systems.​ GameChange provides stamped permit drawings including ballast calculations and embedment depths according to ASCE 7-05 and/or SEAOC as relevant.

We have also ensured that our systems have completed comprehensive wind tunnel testing as well as destructive wind testing as performed by CPP. Our systems are rated to 175mph wind speed and 90psf snow load.
At GameChange Solar, we make customer service a top priority. Our goal is for every customer to be extremely pleased with their experience with deliveries and our onsite field installation training services.

We realize that word of mouth is the best way to grow a business and that our superior products and unparalleled customer service are the keys to success.

Bankability

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.

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.”

Bankability

Reducing Total Racking and Installation Cost

History

Our 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 Better

As 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 solar trackers and racking structures in the industry.

Design

Proprietary Topo Analysis Software Reduces Grading Costs
GameChange Solar provides a value added service for the Genius Tracker single axis tracker and MaxSpan fixed tilt systems 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 posts in valleys so the trackers can span rapid and significant undulations while minimizing or completely eliminating the need for costly grading

Expertly Detailed and Compliant Construction Drawings
We have in-house designers and engineers to provide you with stamped and sealed drawings for tracker and fixed tilt ground systems.

Geotechnical & Pull Testing Services
We can coordinate geotechnical services and/or pull testing, then analyze reports to determine the most reliable and cost effective foundation solutions for commercial and utility scale solar projects for optimized system designs.
