Cantsink Hosted Tour of Georgia’s Solar Manufacturers


Winder, GA – Cantsink proudly hosted Georgia’s State Senator, Frank Ginn, and his colleagues on a tour of the state’s solar manufacturing facilities.
Senator Ginn, whom is also the Chairman of the Georgia Economic Development Committee, has a strong interest in solar and the economic advantages it brings to the state.

Patrick Hutchinson, “We were honored to have Senator Ginn and his colleagues come to the Cantsink plant and take interest in solar. Solar has been an extremely viable business to Cantsink and it has allowed us to add several jobs. We could not do this without our state’s political support.”

Cantsink’s staff organized a day tour of their facility for Senator Ginn and guests. While at Cantsink, the group toured the 8-acre sight and the 25,000 square foot warehouse, viewed the manufacturing equipment and received an overview about the solar foundations products produced by Cantsink. They also showcased their new product, Brilliant Rack, a fixed-tilt solar mounting system for ground-mounted projects. There are 7 MW of Brilliant Rack scheduled to be installed on sites across our state by the end of the year.

The tour also included the facilities of other Georgia-based solar companies including Sunvia and SolarMax. Suniva is a local manufacturer of high-efficiency, PV solar cells and modules. Stephen Shea, Chief Engineering Officer, and John Baumstark, Sunvia’s Chairman, conducted the Sunvia tour. SolarMax is a manufacturer of inverter and monitoring systems in Norcross, GA, and their General Manager, Alan Beale conducted their tour.

Georgia’s 225-percent increase in jobs related to solar is the highest in the country largely due to Georgia Power’s ASI program. This is the second year of Georgia Power’s three-year solar program. The program will bring 210 MW of solar power to Georgia. The Public Service Commission approved 525 MW of solar in the state.
