Borrego, a solar and storage company based in the United States, has released a procurement platform and optimization software aimed at developers, investors, and engineering, procurement, and construction firms. The Anza digital marketplace’s patented technology engine is a cost and performance modelling software that determines the most optimised solar module and storage components based on project specifications provided by the customer. Anza now has about 250 projects and 8GW in the pipeline.
Customers have also ordered 1.7GW of solar modules and energy storage devices, with single orders reaching 350MW. According to the business, 90% of solar modules supplied in the United States and key storage vendors are already submitting product data to the Anza platform.
Customers acquire the modules and battery equipment through Anza, taking advantage of Borrego’s long-standing supplier ties and favourable pricing, warranty, and delivery terms. Anza’s new technology offers extensive modelling and analytics based on customer-submitted project specifications to present the most cost-effective equipment solutions to developers, independent power producers (IPPs), and engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) firms. Anza provides up-to-date net present value (NPV) ranking reports based on these parameters, project inputs, and equipment performance by sourcing equipment availability and pricing from qualified suppliers.
“Anza is a completely different procurement experience from what large-scale solar and storage buyers are used to,” said Aaron Hall, president of Borrego and Anza.
“Instead of looking for and locking in the costs of modules and storage equipment long before they need the items, Anza customers can now see how much any module or battery is worth to a project in real-time when they need it.
“Anza simplifies the procurement process, saving time and money and enabling buyers to recognize better project returns.”
