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 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.
