SOLARDOCK ANNOUNCES APPROVAL OF INTEGRATED GROUNDING TECHNOLOGY

Big savings expected from new grounding clip

WILMINGTON, DE - May 5, 2010 - SolarDock LLC, leading designer and manufacturer of high-tilt-angle racking systems that require no penetration of roof surfaces, is proud to report the approval by Underwriters Laboratories of a proprietary grounding system.


Using the stainless steel SolarDock Grounding Clips, modules are grounded directly to the rack, which is then connected to the main ground. The grounding clip, coupled with additional system modifications, will ensure that no penetrations into the module frame will be necessary. These clips are available exclusively through SolarDock.

"The integrated grounding system is another way in which SolarDock has enhanced its market-leading value proposition to installers and owners alike," says Ed O'Brien, Partner, SolarDock LLC. The elimination of individual connections means installers who use the SolarDock Grounding Clip no longer will be required to connect grounding lugs and run copper cable from module to module. The result will be savings on both installation time and material costs.

It should be noted that this UL recognition currently is limited to specific panels that it tested -- including Sharp 235, SolarWorld 230, Motech 205, and BP 230, among others. Additional modules are in the process of being qualified.

About SolarDock, LLC: Headquartered in the Wilmington-Philadelphia corridor, SolarDock holds the patent on flat-roof mounting frames that offer a high-performance, light-weight, non-penetrating roof installation method that will not cause leaks and is recognized as the most "roof-friendly" racking system by top roofing manufacturers. A flexible, modular structure also facilitates expansion/transfer of solar systems, while the new, UL-approved integrated grounding method saves time and material.
