“By packaging our integrated rack and foundation kits with our mechanical installation services, we do more than just lower labor and other soft costs,” says Mizrachi, newly appointed Vice President, U.S. Sales based out of the new Northeast office. “Our smart designs put ‘more’ product in the ground to meet the industry’s expectations for increased lifespans, while reducing installation labor in high cost markets. I’m excited to join an innovative company that focuses on providing integrated and quality solutions to clients, while streamlining contracting and execution”.

The company will unveil new innovations for its PHLEGON single-axis tracker and fixed-tilt racking solutions, like the EZ-Up feature, at Solar Power Northeast in Boston this week.
