What We Do



SunModo develops, manufactures and sells roof and ground mount systems to residential installers, commercial integrators, and other solar providers who look for quicker and worry-free installation. From its inception, customers quickly recognized SunModo as a trusted provider of consistently lower cost, high quality mounting solution.


Our History

SunModo began in 2008 in Vancouver, WA when founder Tony Liu could not find a PV racking system that would meet his expectations of long-term performance quality while being low cost. With metallurgy and thermal dynamics expertise, Tony developed the ground mount system with auger for the Portland Water Bureau Groundwater Project, the largest ground mount of its kind in Oregon and Tony’s first project.


Later in 2009, Tony designed a completely water-proof flashing that would become the leader in the industry and the backbone of the company.
 
After many years of extensive research and development, what began with a clean sheet of paper evolved into the next generation of full line solar racking solutions.


Behind the Name

SunModo literally means ‘The Way of the Sun’. Modo means “way” in Spanish, derived from the Latin modus “to measure”. Phonetically you pronounce our name “Sun-Modo”.

SunModo strives to make solar energy a bigger part of our everyday life by designing solar mounting products that minimize the total cost of the solar system.
