Tabuchi Electric, a solar inverter manufacturer based in Osaka, Japan, recently made a $3 million investment in ground mount racking system provider Nuance Energy.
According to California-based Nuance, Tabuchi’s investment will help the Japanese company’s expansion in ground-mount distributed generation solar-plus-storage.
“As a leading provider of grid-friendly solar-plus-storage systems optimized for energy management and cost performance, we were early to recognize that Nuance Energy’s unique value proposition would give us a significant advantage in commercial applications,” Harumi McClure, COO and president of Tabuchi Electric Company of America, said in a statement. “Together our companies will expand the available market for solar and open up more project opportunities for our mutual distributor and EPC contractor customers.”
Nuance’s Osprey PowerPlatform uses a minimal earth-penetrating anchor application process for ground-mounted solar arrays. Crews can install the solar arrays using only handheld tools.
“Our growth is currently limited only by our resources, and this investment will enable us to staff our business functions fully and to expand more quickly into new markets throughout North America,” Brian Boguess, Nuance Energy co-founder and CEO, said.
