(Bellingham, WA) – November 13, 2012 - Alpha Energy, leading developer of turn-key renewable energy systems, introduces a newly designed outdoor enclosure to provide robust protection for critical renewable energy power components located in harsh, storm-prone environments.


The Alpha PWE-3 enclosure accommodates multiple charge controllers, batteries and circuit breaker configurations to make renewable energy system design as flexible as possible. Using Alpha's new Optimum Power Solutions (OPS) Configurator, a complete system can be designed in minutes to meet the customer's exact load and geographic location requirements.

"This equipment enclosure leverages the proven performance qualities of Alpha's outside plant broadband legacy and features a tough exterior design, easy operator access and unmatched reliability," said Gord Petroski, Director of Business Development for Alpha Energy. "As far as versatility, the aluminum construction and powder-coated exterior make the PWE-3 the leading choice against wind, rain, snow and other extreme elements."

Alpha's PWE-3 features newly integrated storm hoods and innovative Z-bracket vents to protect critical power equipment and eliminate snow ingress in severe climates. To ensure optimum field performance, each enclosure is tested to blizzard condition standards including simulated 60mph wind-driven snow. Also offering exceptional cooling and protection, the PWE-3 allows up to 18 different configurations for simple adaption to any photovoltaic system.

Alpha's renewable energy solutions will be on display in booth 529 at OSP Expo in Denver, CO. For more information about the PWE-3 enclosure and other renewable energy products, visit www.alpha.com.

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
