Racking Supplier Addresses Market Demand by Offering Solar Installation Services through its Subsidiary, Blue Frog
INDIANAPOLIS – September 9, 2015 – Applied Energy Technologies (AET), a preferred supplier of commercial and utility-scale racking systems and one of the top 10 solar racking companies in the United States, announces that it has crossed 275 MW in installed solar racking systems across the U.S. and South America, and is on pace to surpass 300 MW in the field by year end. Engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractors and developers have come to rely on AET’s high quality racking systems and customer service and are now turning to AET for installation. To address this market demand, AET is expanding its services to include solar installations through its subsidiary, Blue Frog, allowing EPCs and developers to have both their solutions from AET and installation services backed by AET.
Blue Frog also recently completed the installation for a 2.2 MW rooftop project in Indianapolis. AET’s Rayport™-B ECO roof ballast was selected for the project.
“Customers have come to trust and rely on AET, and it’s evident by our more than 275 MW in the field,” said Aaron Faust, VP of Business Development. “In response to customer requests, we chose to expand our offering to include installation as a service. AET has a reputation of evolving its business to meet customer needs, and Blue Frog is the latest example of that. We recognize that our products are trusted in the industry and that AET’s customer service is a key offering to many industry-leading EPCs and developers. Extending our services to include installation is a key benefit for those EPCs and developers looking for a one-stop-shop when it comes to their projects.”
