VesprSolar’s V-Clamp is the first and only solution that delivers on all three key metrics for evaluating PV fasteners for solar panels today: installation speed, reliability in the face of intense vibrational loads, and cost.

Why we invested:


Market Need

The predominant means of installing solar panels relies on decades-old nuts-and-bolts fasteners that are universally acknowledged to require excessive labor costs and result in unacceptably low levels of reliability and durability under intense winds and the resulting high vibrational loads.


Superior Technology

The V-Clamp’s simple, brilliant, patented design saves 2-3 million parts and up to $1M for a 10mW solar panel installation project, is torque-free, and requires no power tools or recharging.


Founder & Team

Co-founder & CEO Robert Sewell spent 5 years in technology strategy consulting at Deloitte. CTO, University of Oklahoma Professor, and V-Clamp inventor Dr. Andres Cavieres has spent 10+ years designing simple and fast-installing solar structures.
