80MW Solar Farm Project in NC, Largest to Date

Innovative Solar Systems, LLC is nearing final approvals for the largest solar farm project in North Carolina to date, an 80MW project in Hope Mills, NC.

Asheville, NC May 15, 2014


The 80MW solar farm project, Innovative Solar 46, located on 450 acres of pristine farm land in Hope Mills, NC will be the largest solar project to be built in the state of North Carolina to date. Innovative Solar Systems has quickly become the largest designer and developer of large scale solar farm projects in NC and has a 2014 portfolio of projects that total almost 1GW. John Green, CEO and managing partner for ISS states that the Hope Mills, NC project is the gold standard when it comes to solar farm projects and should be on line by June 2015.

This project has been designed with state of the art 1000VDC string Inverters to minimize install costs while maximizing system efficiency and energy harvest. Panel racking options for this massive project are still under review, but it is highly likely that single axis tracking type panel racking will be utilized for maximum sunlight capture. The project will employ high level monitoring systems to assure maximum uptime of the solar plant. It has also been identified that the owner of the project may be able to obtain a $5,000,000 Grant as the project qualifies as a NC Eco Industrial Park per state requirements.

Innovative Solar Systems is excited to have a large footprint of solar farm projects in NC as the company expands into other key states for solar power generation. ISS's strategic plan is to keep expanding in the field of ground mount solar farm development while capturing a large portion of the market in North America. ISS is also exploring energy storage and management for both large scale on and off grid projects as the market rapidly changes. The world of renewable energy is ever changing and leaders like Innovative Solar Systems are embracing that change with pioneering efforts in solar farm design and build.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
