Sollega partners with Boots on the Roof Solar Training

Sollega and Boots on the Roof have started a partnership. The Sollega InstaRack, a commercial flat roof solar racking system will be used in Boots on the Roof commercial solar PV courses starting this October in Fremont, California.

The Sollega InstaRack will be used for demonstration and training purposes in the new commercial solar curriculum offered by Boots on the Roof in Fremont, California. Boots on the Roof is the leader in renewable energy training, and the only one offering courses on commercial-scale solar. The Sollega InstaRack is a fully ballasted solar racking system for commercial flat-roofs. The InstaRack is intuitive and fast to install with the fewest number of parts of any ballasted racking system currently on the market.


The InstaRack will be included in the new class called "PV 270 - Commercial Solar PV Construction – MegaLab - 5-Day", which is an 80% "hands-on" course, designed for professional installers, roofers, electricians and general contractors, those who want to master the "how to build it" aspects of commercial photovoltaic systems. Boots on the Roof uses only the latest PV equipment in their classes. They chose the InstaRack because of its unique design and high functionality. "We wanted to add the InstaRack system, because it is innovative, light weight, stackable and easy to install. It's good example of the kind of innovative, cutting edge products we feature in our courses", says Joseph Cascasan from Boots on the Roof.

The students will install complete sub-arrays using the InstaRack system and experience for themselves the advantages compared to conventional flat roof racking systems. The InstaRack is manufactured of high density polyethylene (HDPE) with 35 percent recycled content. This industrial plastic is very robust, non-conductive and resistant to ultra violet light. Its flexibility allows it to adjust to variations in roof elevation and to build around roof obstacles. Sollega is the leader in manufacturing solar racking systems using HDPE in the North American market.

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
