RENUSOL AMERICA LAUNCHES EAST-WEST ORIENTATION PV SOLAR MOUNTING SOLUTION FOR FLAT-ROOF APPLICATIONS
~Rail-less and Modular, New Ballasted Renusol EW System Provides Increased Panel Array Density and Added Power Output~
Atlanta, GA— Renusol America, a leading provider of solar PV mounting solutions, today announces the launch of Renusol EW, a solar PV panel mounting solution with an east-west orientation. Designed for flat-roof applications, the ballasted and non-penetrating system allows for up to a 20% greater array density on a given roof, increasing the amount of power generated. The integrated ballast system eliminates the need for separate wind deflectors.
In addition to the more power generated with more panels per square foot, the Renusol EW eliminates the mid-day electricity ‘spike' typically found in a south-facing systems and spreads power generated more evenly throughout the day, allowing for more efficient inverters and lowering overall project costs.
"With the industry trending toward east-west oriented installations, Renusol EW is all about keeping it simple for installers, lowering project costs and maximizing power output," says Renusol America's CEO, Bart Leusink.
The rail-less Renusol EW system is lightweight and modular, further reducing installation costs, and utilizes the universal clamps from other Renusol systems to hold the panels in place. The mounting posts assemble with just one nut. This system is available in a 10° tilt and is compatible with both 60-cell and 72-cell modules.
Wind tunnel tested, Renusol EW is UL 1703 Class A fire rated for Type I and II modules without requiring any additional components.
