RBI Solar, the leading solar racking manufacturer for ground mount and carport solar, says the office will be dedicated to manufacturing solar mounting systems and business development.
The new 60,000-sq-ft office, at 27711 Diaz Road, draws upon the highly skilled workforce in California. RBI has hired employees for various manufacturing positions along with designers, engineers and account representatives and is planning to hire up to 20 more by the end of 2015.
“Manufacturing and installing optimally engineered solar mounting systems at competitive price is a key to our continued success as a business for more than 80-years,” said Bill Vietas, general manager. “California was our first choice as a location since it offers close proximity to ongoing and future projects.”
RBI Solar is the first company to offer a complete turnkey solution for solar mounting systems. With an in-house team of engineers and designers, RBI provides low-maintenance racking solutions, which are designed to site-specific conditions.
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.
