tenKsolar, a Minneapolis based manufacturer of low voltage, highly efficient photovoltaic (PV) systems and SoCore Energy, a premier developer of commercial solar projects, recently announced that they are joining forces to deliver commercial and community solar garden projects built on tenK’s PV systems technology.
The collaboration aligns with the market’s demand for community solar gardens, a form of distributed generation consisting of centrally located arrays of PV panels shared by multiple subscribers, and features high efficiency projects in the commercial sector, supporting strong financial return, unmatched reliability and low voltage safety.
Joel Cannon, CEO of tenK, said, “We are extremely impressed with the skill of the SoCore team. Together we are already co-developing over 45 MW of projects serving local government and Fortune 500 energy off-takers.”
“As a complete end-to-end PV systems vendor, tenK has improved many deployment and maintenance costs while offering among the best efficiency footprints in the industry,” said SoCore President Pete Kadens. “SoCore is actively seeking to acquire projects built on advanced technologies such as those developed by tenK in order to expand the use of solar in businesses and the wider community. We are excited to be working with a Minnesota-based company to expand solar in their home state.”
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.
