Pegasus Solar™ Wins US Patent for Faster, Easier Solar Panel Clamps

The US Patent Office has granted Pegasus Solar™ a patent for residential solar panel clamps that make the mounting process faster and easier than ever. This is the third patent Pegasus has received for innovations to residential solar mounting systems.

Pegasus Solar™ today announced that the U.S. Patent Office has issued the company a patent for its solar panel clamps for residential installations, which make the mounting process faster and easier than ever. U.S. Patent No. 9,660,570 is Pegasus' third U.S. patent granted.

Pegasus' rail-free residential solar mounting systems use the clamps to secure solar panels to residential rooftops. Conventional mounting structures require extensive installation time and awkward maneuvering by installers. Pegasus' self-aligning clamps are configured to align the clamping faces instantly upon tightening. The clamps also include a camlock-type action so installers don't have to reach over PV modules to tighten mid clamps at dangerous or uncomfortable angles.
"As more and more solar energy systems are installed on U.S. rooftops, installers need high-quality equipment that is faster and easier to use," said Kai Stephan, Pegasus' CEO. "This latest patent confirms Pegasus' leadership and innovation in developing better mounting systems for the residential solar industry."
Pegasus holds two previously issued patents: U.S. Patent No. 9,473,066 covers solar mounting systems that use a threaded leveling mechanism and novel waterproofing design to eliminate washers; U.S. Patent No. 9,252,310 covers mounting system improvements that reduce wear on rooftops.
About Pegasus Solar™
Founded in 2012, Pegasus Solar designs and manufactures innovative rooftop mounting systems for global solar markets. Pegasus' team is dedicated to simplifying solar, speeding up installations and driving out cost. Its LightSpeed Mount Residential, a revolutionary new rail-less system, uses one-third the parts and pieces of conventional mounting systems and installs twice as fast while saving up to 25 percent on costs. Pegasus' LightSpeed Tile Replace system is twice as fast to install as traditional tile hooks, and works with conventional rails or the LightSpeed Mount rail-free system.
