GameChange Solar’s Genius Tracker™ Unit Requires 28% Less Installation Work Than Competing Units

Author:

GameChange Solar, a leading provider of solar tracking solutions for ground-mounted photovoltaic power plants, has released the results of a comprehensive third-party time study focused on the installation of its Genius Tracker™ solar tracking units. The study, conducted by Eclipse-M, a leading provider of OEM time studies, concluded that the Genius Tracker™ unit requires 28% less work during installation compared to the average of three relevant 1P units on the market.

The time study was based on field observations at a 456 MW solar power plant in Texas, at GameChange Solar’s training center, and several other projects actively monitored by Eclipse-M in the last five years. The data was then compared with historical records of similar activities in Eclipse-M’s databases for other relevant tracking units in the industry. Charles Bishop, VP of Field Operations at GameChange Solar, closely collaborated with Eclipse-M for three months to ensure accurate data was collected at the locations.

Key findings of the study include:

– The Genius Tracker™ 1P unit showed significant productivity benefits compared to competing units, requiring 28% less work during installation than the average of three relevant 1P units on the market.
– GameChange Solar’s emphasis on pre-assembly in manufacturing and the use of relatively fewer parts greatly streamlines installation processes, reduces labor requirements, and simplifies logistics and material handling.
– The SpeedClamp™ system enables the installation of the module with just two screws, including securing the module’s clamp itself.
– The drive system and overall construction of the Genius Tracker™ IP unit are considered best-in-class for productivity per megawatt (MH/MW), with module installation significantly faster than other relevant 1P tracking units on the market.
– Innovative features such as a two-piece tube mounting system on the column contribute to faster and more accurate installation with adjustability in all desired directions.

GameChange Solar also provides its customers with an advanced online portal for tracking shipment status, offering real-time logistics information down to the container content level, facilitating efficient shipment planning in accordance with construction schedules.

“Our commitment to innovative design and logistical efficiency is evident in the results of this time study,” said Derick Botha, EVP of GameChange Solar. “We take pride in offering solutions that maximize energy performance while minimizing installation time and labor costs.”
