BayWa r.e. Solar Systems is starting up distribution of PanelClaw’s clawFR platform for commercial rooftops, now shipping from its recently expanded network of warehouses across the U.S. Public Customer Training for Panel Claw will take place on Thursday, Feb. 10 at 11 a.m. PST.
BayWa r.e. will be providing installers of all sizes a viable racking option paired with design, training and support services so they can bid on commercial flat roof projects. The partnership also offers engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) providers working with distribution partners access to clawFR. The team plans to roll out clawOS, a comprehensive racking array design software early this year.
“The partnership with PanelClaw provides our customers with new options for larger jobs in commercial flat roofs,” said Jodi White, co-CEO at BayWa r.e. Solar Systems LLC. “We strive to have best-in-class products like clawFR in our warehouses, and it checks all the boxes for our clientele in terms of performance, product support and project growth efficiency.”
“We are thrilled to empower BayWa r.e.’s customers with the best flat roof racking platform in the market today, clawFR,” said PanelClaw CEO Costa Nicolaou. “This new partnership will result in happier customers that grow their flat roof business for BayWa r.e. and expanded market share for PanelClaw. A win, win, win.”
Featuring a 25-year limited warranty, the clawFR racking system is available in 10-degree and dual-tilt options. PanelClaw’s flagship product enables faster build times with a single-bolt hardware kit, tool-less module attachment and preinstalled roof protection pads. The platform has gone through rigorous testing and has been installed in more than 10,000 projects.
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.
