INTERSOLAR and looking ahead to 2020 - Q&A with QuickBOLT

Q&A with | QuickBOLT

Tell us about your company.

QuickBOLT is the creator of the patented QuickBOLT with Microflashing®. Our innovative leak-proof Microflashing® system is installed without removing nails and staples of lifting shingles, saving installers time and money. The QuickBOLT with Microflashing® can be used on Asphalt, TPO, and EPDM roofs. We also provide mounting solutions for Tile, Stone Coated Steel, and Metal roofs.

 

Your company will be exhibiting at Intersolar North America, what is it that makes this an important event for your company?

Intersolar is an important event for us because we love getting to meet with our customers in person. It is extremely helpful for our customers to see and touch our products. We always say that presentation without demonstration is just conversation, so we love being able to demonstrate how our products work.

 

What makes your booth a must visit for Intersolar Attendees?

Installers are going to want to visit our booth at Intersolar because we are going to be showing two brand new revolutionary products!

The QB2 is our most advanced QuickBOLT design yet, with error proof compression and only 3 components. It has all of the qualities our customers love about the Low Profile QuickBOLT and it makes using sealant optional. We are also introducing our new Miniflashing™, which works in tandem with our Microflashing® systems and allows installers to completely get rid of sealant altogether!

 

When you get a chance to walk the exhibit hall floor yourself, what is it you will be most interested to see?  Any educational sessions, pavilions etc. you plan on attending?

Most of our focus at this years Intersolar will be on showing our new products and meeting with and answering any questions customers may have. When we do have a chance to talk the floor, we will be on the lookout for other new products hitting the market.

 

What are you projecting for 2020?  Do you see more growth or turmoil ahead for solar and the economy?

We believe that 2020 is going to be the year of the QuickBOLT. The QB2 and Miniflashing™ are the future of QuickBOLT and solar mounting. We have seen tremendous growth throughout the US, especially on the east coast where Asphalt Shingle roofs are more prominent. There is really no other mounting system out there that is easier or faster for installers to use, or that can seal a roof penetration more completely.

 

What are the biggest challenges facing the solar industry in 2020?

As the ITC reduction decreases there will be some homeowners that will not get enough value to justify going to solar.  This will put pressure on suppliers to reduce their prices or develop lower cost components.

 

Do you think the solar industry is in a good position to grow through what may be a bumpy next few years?

We strongly believe that Solar will continue to grow. There are many people, like me, that want to be part of the solution. I just added solar on my home, not because I am not getting any savings, but I just felt like it was the right thing to do. I think more and more people are taking this stance and if prices come down, there will be more incentive to add solar to their homes.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
