Hawaii’s Oldest Country Club Gets a New Source of Power

Contributed by | Sollega

 

The oldest Country Club in Hawaii, the Oahu Country Club, has partnered with Solar Installer Hawaii Energy Connection (HEC) to install a ground mount photovoltaic system. The Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative, in conjunction with the State of Hawaii and The US Department of Energy, have set goals to achieve an astounding 100% clean energy by 2045. These are the most aggressive renewable energy goals in the US. Not only will this achievement rank Hawaii as a world leader in renewable energy, but will also function to stabilize and increase the independence of their local economy.

Sollega is proud to participate on this project and provide this system.

The FastRack510 (FR510) was selected to mount a total of 414 LG and 86 SunPerfect Solar modules. The one-piece FR510 requires no assembly, and it’s universal design allowed HEC to install two different models of PV modules, with the same simple and intuitive installation procedure. The non-corrosive Ultramid material, and Sollega’s proven engineering made this competitively priced mounting solution even more attractive for the tropical and costal region. The high array density of the FR510 allowed HEC to reach their production goals.

Hawaii Energy Connection, one of Hawaii’s leading turn-key solar solutions, was able to install the system at an average rate of 2 kW per man-hour. With a crew of 4 they completed the Ground Mount installation of the modules in just 2 days. Sollega’s flexible wire-management system and 8” ground clearance made stringing modules with optimizers and performing home runs just as simple and fast as installing the modules.

Ground preparation required grading, installation of a weed barrier and drain gravel. No additional work was necessary to install the system. The Oahu Country Club is not only in hurricane prone regions, but also in areas of high seismic activity. No seismic anchor were installed. This system was fully ballasted.

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

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.
