AET Provides Solar Racking for Installation at Seattle Mariners Training Facility

MAUMEE, Ohio – AET (Applied Energy Technologies)

AET (Applied Energy Technologies), a preferred supplier of utility-scale racking systems and one of the top 10 solar racking companies in the United States, today announced the completion of a solar installation project in partnership with Sky Renewable Energy at the Seattle Mariners spring training facility in Arizona.The project was developed and financed by Healthy Planet Partners, a clean energy solutions fund that finances, implements and maintains distributed energy and energy efficiency projects that optimize performance in commercial buildings.


AET provided its Rayport-B stainless steel roof ballast racking system for the 86kW rooftop portion of a 345 kW project at the Mariners facility in Peoria, Arizona. The facility has recently received Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification for its best-in-class building strategies and practices.

Aaron Faust, VP Business Development commented: "We are excited to be playing a part in the Seattle Mariners' environmental program in Arizona. Installation has now been completed on an 86kW solar array using AET's Rayport-B racking system. This array will generate enough energy to power eight Arizona homes for a year.

"The Rayport-B is the only stainless steel system on the market and offers industry-leading installation time due to its integrated fasteners which allow the use of one common bolt for all joints, and integrated panel grounding."

Kay Young, President at Sky Renewable Energy said: "The Seattle Mariners project has been an exciting one and we have been very pleased with the quality of AET's product, and the company's commitment to providing an excellent customer service experience."

The Rayport-B stainless steel roof ballast system fits all major solar modules available on the market today and is available in a variety of panel configurations. It is ETL listed to UL 2703, wind tunnel tested to 120 mph and comes with a 15 year limited warranty. The Rayport-B is quick and easy to install, and is available for immediate shipment.

AET's engineers are constantly delivering innovative, high quality solutions to meet the needs of solar racking customers. AET's racking products are designed to save valuable installation time, help minimize installation-related maintenance issues and to work within developer and EPC budgets.

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.
