That was what a German based Solar Company showed up with at the SPI in Las Vegas. On the race to bring down the price of electric power from renewable systems, the companies here on the Solar Power International are exhibiting many new items. With higher efficiency of the solar modules and saving material on the structures, the investment to build up a solar farm goes down more and more and the cost per kW/h is already beyond 5 Cent. But now the Company Galaxy Energy presented a ground mount system which goes into another direction. "Time is money" And so they developed the fastest mounting system in the world. They are claiming that with 24 workers they can build up one Megawatt a day. So this is about five times faster than all the others can do, the CEO Georg Schöll explains. To be fast is not only to save labor cost, the main benefit are for the investors and EPCs. At the bottom line this can bring down the price of output power to 3 Cent per kW/h. What amazing.
The Power Rail™ Commercial Mounting System is designed with the professional PV solar installer in mind. Both the XD/UD and LD/MD rails feature single tool assembly with the revolutionary patented RAD™ Lock-in-Place bolt for fast and secure module clamping. The high strength marine-grade aluminum rails include an integral wiring channel for securing cables and providing a professional finish.
