APsystems is moving its U.S. base of operations to Austin, Texas from its longtime home of Seattle. The new location, at 8701 North MoPac Expressway, Suite 160 in Austin, Texas, the company says, offers better proximity to customers nationwide and will serve as a central base of operations for APsystems’ U.S. business unit.

APsystems is also bringing on experienced management executive Daniel Burke as Country Director for its U.S. business unit. Burke joins APsystems from Dalkia US, EDF Group, where he served as vice president of distributed generation sales and marketing. Prior to that, he held senior management roles at Aegis Energy Services, National Waste Associates, and Windsor Marketing Group.

At APsystems, Burke will be responsible for U.S. top and bottom-line P&L, business operations management, organizational management and development, revenue and market share growth, and strategic alignment across all departments.

“While our success and growth in the U.S. has been strong, the solar market remains full of tremendous potential,” said Olivier Jacques, APsystems president of global business units and global executive vice-president. “The relocation of our U.S. main office to Austin, and the strategic hire of Daniel Burke, are foundational groundwork for the next stage of our growth and customer support in the U.S.”

APsystems continues to experience year-over-year growth in every major global market and recently passed the 2GW mark of installed capacity to date, and the 1-million-unit mark for RSD shipments under its APsmart brand. The firm will look to continue its growth trajectory with its newly introduced product line, the DS3 microinverter series, and its 3-phase offering, the QT2, arriving in the U.S. in Q3.

Here a recent episode of the Pitch, where we went in-depth on its DS3 microinverter – the most powerful microinverter out there.

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.

We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
