SPG SOLAR UNVEILS NEW TECHNOLOGY AND TRAINING CENTER

Sacramento-based facility showcases SunSeeker®-friendly installation process; offers hands-on training experience

Petaluma, Calif. – June 12, 2013 – SPG Solar, a leading provider of utility and commercial solar power products and services, today announced the opening of the Technology and Training Center at Depot Park in Sacramento, Calif. The facility provides a unique training opportunity for construction crews, engineers and designers to assemble and install SPG Solar's SunSeeker single-axis tracker.


"We constructed the new facility to display our simplified seven-step install process, allowing solar developers and construction firms the opportunity to build the system from start to finish," said Doug May, CEO of SPG Solar. "The goal of the facility is to help people develop the proper technical skills for installation, so crews can hit the ground running once they're in the field and on the clock."

The opening of the Technology and Training Center is the next step in SPG Solar's mission to have the lowest install costs and highest quality single-axis tracker on the market. The simple installation of a single-axis tracking system increases a system's output and maximizes a project's ROI. The SunSeeker tracker was engineered to be installed faster and perform under any condition. The system follows the sun throughout the course of the day to help maximize solar energy production.

SPG Solar will also use the facility for testing, recently completing a 50-year lifecycle test which proved that the tracker is designed to handle the elements with all key components fully operational upon completion. SPG Solar currently has 3.5 megawatts (MW) of the SunSeeker tracker in operation at the location. For more information on the Technology and Training Center, please contact SPG Solar.

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.
