Georgia solar company to install North Georgia's largest solar project

The small town of Dahlonega, Georgia will soon be home to the largest commercial solar array in North Georgia. The install is being handled by Solar Energy USA. Patrons of Northview Orthopaedic Associates will see a live TV feed of the solar power that is being generated to power medical devices.

Solar Energy USA of Atlanta, Georgia recently broke ground on what will be the largest commercial solar installation in the area - a 163 solar panel install for Northview Orthopaedic Associates medical office located in North Georgia.


The combination rooftop and ground-mount system is expected to generate 58,000 kWh of energy in the first year of operation alone. A double layer ground-mount will be located along the back perimeter of the medical office's parking lot.

Comprised of 37.49kW worth of solar panel capacity, the orthopedic office's new solar array will lead to an estimated one-half million dollars in energy savings over 35 years, reducing their monthly bill by over 15%. The project takes advantage of various federal and state tax incentives that help offset over 90% of the upfront cost.

This solar project uses the latest in solar energy conversion technology - M215 microinverters from Enphase Energy - which help identify each individual solar panel's power output. A live feed of each day's solar energy production will be shown in the Northview Orthopaedic waiting area so that customers can see how much power the sun is contributing to run the medical devices used to diagnose their ailments.

The development is a win-win-win for the medical company. It will save them money, help protect against power rate increases, and will also establish their orthopedic office as a role model for other medical companies and North Georgia businesses in the area to adopt renewables and implement clean energy practices.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
