About Us: The SunPods Story
One thing was very obvious to SunPods founders, Dan Jaeger and Michael Gumm: The innovations in solar technologies were making solar energy more affordable; however, solar installation methods remained inefficient, resulting in high installation costs.
Combining their knowledge and experience gained from years in the solar, building and roofing industries, Dan and Michael developed the vision to speed up the solar PV installation process while reducing installation costs over a wide variety of solar applications. Thus, the latest in solar innovations was created, which we call SunPods™, Sun Power on Demand.
The SunPods photovoltaic systems address the importance of meeting construction budgets, installation schedules, array commissioning deadlines and reaching specific power output goals – all critical in the installation process. Often, the failure to meet these specific project goals and deadlines results in substantial financial losses and penalties.
So, what are SunPods?
SunPods are factory-built solar photovoltaic (PV) arrays – complete with PV modules, wiring, inverter, and other components specific to the solar application. A "SunPods unit" refers to the individual, solar power unit that is pre-manufactured and delivered to the project site ready to power-up with minimal site preparation or construction. The SunPods are pre-assembled into modular units so that no assembly is required on the project site. The SunPods product line was developed using our "SunPods Solar Smart Technology™" design concept. This streamlined process is applied to improve existing products and all new product development.
Solar energy scalable to utility-size solar farms
Using SunPods flexible modular design allows designers and engineers to design and build solar PV arrays from a simple single unit to full-scale utility sized power farms.
We're excited about SunPods and seeing the vision come to form a solar business that is gaining widespread attention from the government, commercial and residential customers as well as the solar industry.
