Texas-based engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firm AFC Solar signed a distributor agreement with Oregon-based Stracker Solar, which specialized in elevated dual-axis solar trackers. The distribution partnership will boost Stracker Solar’s national expansion efforts and bring an elevated solar power solution to AFC Solar’s clients east of the Rocky Mountains in the Midwest, Southeast and Northeast regions.
“We believe that the partnership with Stracker Solar will bring mutual benefits for both companies,” said Zach Ward, VP/Managing Partner at AFC Solar. “There’s a great market potential for elevated dual-axis solar trackers that are attractive and fit many environments. We are excited to be a first EPC to offer such cutting-edge solar power system for our clients.”
AFC Solar is a subsidiary of Americase Fabrication and Construction, a market leading steel fabricator. AFC Solar was founded in 2017 and their product line includes steel solar carport and rooftop mounting systems, with high-profile installations in Colorado, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey, Florida, and Texas. AFC Solar has fabricated and/or installed over 50MW of canopies since 2017.
AFC Solar will now market and install Stracker dual-axis solar trackers for clients in the commercial, industrial and community solar sectors.
“We are elated to have AFC Solar as a Distribution Partner,” said Stracker Solar CEO Allen Gilstrap. “They are innovative, have strong leadership and share our vision of providing new and high-performance solar solutions to our clients.”
Cole Morgan, President of Americase Fabrication and Construction and AFC Solar added, “Stracker elevated dual-axis solar trackers have several advantages that make them a perfect addition to AFC Solar’s product portfolio – where traditional fixed tilt carport structures may not be efficient or feasible, and where owners may want eye-catching curb appeal in addition to their traditional canopies. We look forward to working closely with the Stracker Team.”
Together with Stracker Solar, AFC Solar will work to partner with businesses, organizations, municipalities, and energy co-ops to bring clean, reliable solar energy to regions of the United States that are at the forefront of a just and climate-aware energy transition.
