ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO — Unirac Inc., North America's leading manufacturer of solar photovoltaic (PV) mounting solutions, partnered with enXco Inc. to supply a Laminate RapidRac commercial flat roof solution for a 1.8 MW solar array. The array is one of the largest roof-top installations in the United States and enXco expects the project to begin producing energy in the very short term.


Unirac's Custom Solutions Division (CSG) designed the ballasted racking system to mount approximately 25,000 thin film modules. The Unirac CSG team developed an integrated racking design to provide an efficient construction solution, maximizing the size of the PV system with the lowest installation cost possible.

"enXco is excited to be working with Unirac on this important project and values the support we received from their Custom Solutions Division," said David Kirkpatrick, enXco Director of New Business Development. "We look forward to working with Unirac on future solar development opportunities."

RapidRac provides the solar market with one of the simplest and most cost-effective racking systems for flat roof installations. Combined with innovative engineering and minimized components, RapidRac installations have seen an increase in labor savings, lighter ballast and no penetrations. The flexible design accommodates standard PV and thin film modules and meets the many challenges of weight, height and wind constraints required for arrays.

"We are delighted to be chosen by enXco to provide RapidRac technology for this significant installation," said Douglas May, Unirac CEO. "It reflects the strength of the Unirac product line and our ability to meet evolving market needs. We are committed to supplying customers with innovative technology that meets or exceeds their requirements. We look forward to working with the enXco team in continuing to build a highly successful strategic relationship."
