RBI Solar, Inc. sent word that it has acquired California-based SolarBOS, Inc., a market leading provider of PV electrical balance of systems (BOS). As a single source provider of solar racking systems, RBI Solar will look to integrate SolarBOS’ products to more completely throughout its lineup.
Founded in 2004, SolarBOS brings deep understanding of solar electric systems, DC and AC applications, and experience in design and flexible manufacturing. The company’s focus on developing reliable, innovative and cost effective solutions has been the driving force behind its success. Over the years, SolarBOS has designed and perfected many BOS solutions, including Disconnect Combiners and Recombiners, Arc Fault Circuit Interruption (AFCI) Combiners, Rapid Shutdown solutions, AC Combiners, Wire Harnesses, and Overmolds.
SolarBOS will be a perfect match for RBI Solar, a leading solar mounting solutions supplier in the United States. As a single-source provider, RBI takes responsibility for the design, engineering, manufacturing and installation of the most efficient ground mount, canopy, roof mount and ballasted racking systems in the marketplace. With 85+ years of experience in the commercial design-build specialty structures market, the company provides value from project conception to substantial completion.
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.
