Sunfolding, a single-axis tracker systems developer, announced the launch of the Sunfolding Construction Network (SCN), a membership program for tracker installation companies.
“Our installer network program provides the training and documentation that allows installation teams to take full advantage of the construction cost reductions that Sunfolding trackers enable,” said Wes Fuller, VP of strategic partnerships at Sunfolding. “The companies who take advantage of this powerful curriculum will also have access to the Sunfolding project sales pipeline, which takes the hard-sell piece of the business out of the process.”
SCN members receive installation optimization resources, as well as training, to give them the skills and tools to build their projects as quickly and efficiently as possible. Member companies will also have preferred access to the pipeline of pre-qualified Sunfolding projects, aiming to reduce project acquisition costs and shorten sales cycles.
Companies joining the SCN as “Basic Members” will receive advanced installation training, delivery timing and work step sequence information, an optimized delivery plan for Sunfolding tracker installations and access to qualified project leads.
Those that join the SCN as “Prime Members” receive all the benefits of Basic Members, as well as advanced in-field, in-person training from Sunfolding technicians on how to build tracker rows most efficiently; full project and equipment sequencing plans, in-field labor optimization tools, and commissioning services; and O&M best practices.
Prime Members will have preferred access to qualified project leads for projects from 30 MW to 500 MW in size.
Network member training will take place at the Sunfolding Performance Center in Davis.
“We joined the Sunfolding Construction Network as a Prime Member because it makes bidding on projects extremely efficient,” said Boyan Tabutov, CEO and President of Solar Energy Resources. “Beyond making new project initiation simple, spending time with Sunfolding experts in a hands-on scenario opens up direct communication between our installers and the Sunfolding technical team, making us even more efficient.”
