Affordable Wire Management (AWM) delivers innovative, precision-engineered solutions that are durable, reliable and safe. Since our founding in 2020, we’ve grown substantially, delivering 1.3 GW of our solar cable management offerings in 2021 and 2+ GW in 2022.
The top-ranked EPCs in North America rely on us because we offer consistent, long-term value, both in the product itself and downstream. Our solutions are built tough - engineered to withstand extreme ice and snow loads, punishing heat, and worst-case corrosive environments.
Among other notable projects, we successfully deployed a DC collection system on the largest solar site in Canada. Having developed a number of products that have been brought to multi-gigawatt-scale adoption, our ability to deliver transformative solutions is built on our expertise in the space.
The AWM team is comprised of experienced professionals that are passionate about driving the adoption of solar energy. Prior to founding the company, our executives led the way in clean energy technology development, deployment, and commercialization, setting the standard for BOS componentry, and tracker wire management at utility-scale.
