In January 2018, TerraSmart, an innovator in ground mount racking solutions for utility-scale solar projects, will open an operational hub in Selkirk, New York. The 10,000 square-foot facility was strategically chosen to support its growing construction operations in the Northeast and will serve as a blueprint to set up future construction hubs across the country in locations where solar is expanding.
Situated on thirty acres of land, the multipurpose yet cutting-edge facility will provide efficient support to field operations nearby. The hub will house TerraSmart’s custom installation machines and be a service center for all of its machines and trucks, therefore aiding in quicker response time. The building will also serve as a training facility for all East Coast construction staff enabling them proper certification of TerraSmart’s proprietary install techniques. Additionally, the hub will act as a product showroom for clients to come view, learn and be trained on the vast products and machines TerraSmart utilizes to install a solar farm.
“It’s very satisfying to call Selkirk TerraSmart’s construction home. New York has been a great state for solar and we are looking forward to creating more solar jobs to support our expanding construction activities across the Northeast,” says TerraSmart CEO Ryan Reid. “The facilities’ design and purpose will serve as the blueprint of which TerraSmart will use to set up future construction hubs, thus supporting our continuous pursuit of enhancing the solar construction experience for our clients.”
