Ontario, CA Santa Clara's solar research facility uses HatiCon Solar's Ground Mount.


Vista Solar completed the installation of the City of Santa Clara's first solar research installation. The 125 kW renewable energy installation is located in a land parcel adjacent to Jenny Strand Park. It will generate electricity for Silicon Valley Power, Santa Clara's municipal electric utility.

Santa Clara based MiaSole supplied the thin-film panels. Their high-efficiency CIGS (copper iridium gallium selenide) solar PV panels were used for this installation. The panels were installed on HatiCon Solar's Ground Mount system, which is certified for MiaSole panels. CED Greentech San Leandro supplied local dealer support.

HatiCon Solar's frameless module clamps click onto the support rails and are adjustable to thin film panels of varying thickness. Thin film panels are secured with an integrated rubber gasket that ensures there is no metal to glass contact.
