At Unirac, the mission Better Solar Starts Here also extends to the Latin America market (LATAM), where its team of highly experienced individuals is partnering with local installers and distributors to expand the growth of solar in an emerging solar market.
Chema Delgadillo, Unirac’s Strategic Account Manager for LATAM, is responsible for Unirac’s operations in the region. Chema began his career in the solar industry five years ago and, through his time in solar financing and a supply network along with developing new markets for microinverters and solar modules, he has developed a vision for the industry. In his current role, Chema oversees the internal processes, strategy, distribution channels, and logistics for the company. Chema is passionate about solar energy, as he believes that it is the best way to make a difference in today’s world and our future generations.
Fernando Anchondo, Unirac’s Business Development Representative for LATAM, focuses on developing new accounts. He has spent more than eleven years at Unirac, and has worked in welding, quality control as a Quality Engineer, and in Sales. His experience in various departments has given him detailed knowledge of the products—from metal compositions to various aspects of the product designs. In his current role, he supports Unirac’s partners in Latin America and the Caribbean by providing a complete solution, from product introduction to sales, quotation, design, and installation. Fernando is equally passionate about solar energy because, in addition to reducing electricity bills, it is an excellent way to provide electricity for many people who otherwise would not have access to it.
Fernando and Chema enjoy the challenges that come with working in a growing market—from different applications, products, and installation methods to navigating regulations and logistics. They are also excited about the potential for solar energy in Latin America, as the market has unique characteristics that makes it perfect for solar energy—great solar radiation throughout the year, favorable laws that support solar expansion, helpful financing mechanisms, and a strong network of solar professionals. Most importantly, just as like in other parts of the globe, people in Latin America want to make a difference in the world by choosing solar energy. Unirac is proud to be a part of spreading better solar to more people in this region of the world.
