Electrical distributor Sonepar USA, a subsidiary of the privately held Sonepar Group, has partnered with EcoFasten Solar, an Esdec Solar Group company. For Sonepar, this deal means it can start offering its solar market customers Ecofasten’s racking and attachment options. For Ecofasten, this is a big opportunity to make its product line available to a broader market of smaller, mid-tier solar installers.
“EcoFasten’s solutions for the market have primarily benefited larger installers up until now,” says Andrew Jones, Director of Renewable Energy at Sonepar USA, says of the partnership. “With our new EcoFasten partnership, we will make their products accessible to solar installers of all sizes and enable enhanced services directly to regional and national solar installers.”
Sonepar USA operates in all 50 states through more than 400+ branch locations. Among their operating companies with dedicated renewable energy sales team specialists is OneSource Distributors, NorthEast Electrical (NEEDCO), Independent Electric Supply, Capital Electric Supply, Codale Electric Supply, Cooper Electric, Springfield Electric Supply, North Coast Electric, and Crawford Electric Supply. Here is the full list of Sonepar distribution locations.
Bart Leusink, CEO of EcoFasten, says of the partnership, “We are excited about our partnership with Sonepar in the United States and look forward to our close collaboration in servicing small to mid-size installers. The Sonepar companies will provide extended regional support through a local inventory of innovative rooftop mounting and racking solutions.”
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 discuss 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.
