GP JOULE Expands Capacity into Key US Northeast and Midwest Solar Markets with New York Office

Integrated Canadian-Based EPC Brings its Line of PV Mechanical Product Solutions to Fast-Growing States

TORONTO, ON, Canada – GP JOULE Canada Corp., a subsidiary of GP JOULE GmbH, today announces the opening of an office in Suffolk County, New York to support its expansion into 15 Northeastern and Midwestern solar markets. One of the only EPCs in North America to offer proprietary ground-mount racking solutions, GP JOULE has tripled its manufacturing capacity and established local construction resources and partnerships, to support its 2019 demand in excess of 300 MW.

“In order to best serve the ongoing growth of solar PV in New York, Massachusetts, Illinois and other Northern States, establishing a base in New York was a natural and necessary step for us,” says David Pichard, CEO of GP JOULE. “I am pleased Jonathan Mizrachi has joined the GP JOULE family to lead our Product Solutions business development and manage customer relationships, bringing over 10 years of leadership in the PV industry in those markets.”

“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 Feb. 5 and 6.
