Unirac Awarded Contract to supply 1MW Ground Mount Tracker (GMT) for Installation at United States Gypsum Facility

The project broke ground late in November and is scheduled to be completed in January 2014.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Dec. 12, 2013 -- Unirac, Inc., a Hilti Group Company and leading provider of high quality, competitive PV mounting solutions in North America, has been selected by Green Light Plaster City Solar and ZGlobal, Inc. to provide a 1 MW Ground Mount Tracker (GMT) at the United States Gypsum's (USG) manufacturing facility in Plaster City, CA. The project broke ground late in November and is scheduled to be completed in January 2014.


GMT is efficiently designed to save time and money on the job site. Prefabricated components and pre-panelization of module tables enable parallel construction to decrease total construction time by 25%. Features like slip-on Teflon bearings and beam clips eliminate field welding for ease of installation. GMT's moving components incorporate proven technologies trusted over years of operation under harsh environments, high cycles, and dynamic loads. GMT is also backed by an industry leading warranty.

Jeremy Vaa, President of Green Light Plaster City Solar 1 cites that "GMT's flexible design enabled our expert system engineering firm, ZGlobal Inc. to design around the factory's site constraints, while also meeting our projected budget. He also highlighted, "GMT surpassed all projected labor metrics, power density and flexibility requirements."

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.
