It is official, Unirac has decided to discontinue its Solarmount Evolution product, thereby ending the run of what we considered the best solar racking solution in the industry.
This despite our Open Letter to Unirac Management. Who would have guessed that they would ignore our concerns? (Well ok, pretty much everybody would have guessed that…)
In a one-line email, SM-E Product Manager, Keith Hardy broke the bad news:
After much deliberation, Unirac has decided to discontinue sales of the SME product line (effective 30 May 2014). Thank you.
Less it be lost to the sands of time, this is how Unirac used to promote this product:
Silly us, we actually believed that this was a product that “redefined what residential mounting systems can offer distributors and installers.” To say nothing of homeowners, the most important constituency in this whole process. Suffice it to say, we think this is a really bad call.
No word from Unirac on what is replacing SM-E, if anything, and with Intersolar 2014 just around the corner ("are you goin’ to San Francisco?") it looks like we will be in the market for a new racking solution.
Cue the sales people—our business is now up for grabs!
