Schletter Inc. Launches Cost-Savings Program for Utility-Scale Installers

Launching at Intersolar North America, Schletter is offering a set of tractor-trailers for scheduling by FS System customers throughout the U.S.

Schletter©, a well-known partner in solar photovoltaic (PV) racking systems, will unveil the first of its tractor-trailers equipped to service customers installing large commercial and utility-scale ground mount solar PV arrays.


The company plans to launch the new program at Intersolar North America in San Francisco July 12 – 14, 2011. Located in booth 5146, one of the company's two booths at the trade show, Schletter will showcase the key systems of their ground mount product capabilities. Included in the display will be the tractor-trailer, FS System™, and GAYK™ hydraulic pile driving ram used in the majority of its FS System installations. The company plans to release two tractor-trailers within the US in the coming months.

"Not only will this program be cost-effective for our customers who participate in our ram rental and purchasing program," says Martin Hausner, President of Schletter Inc., "it will also expedite delivery times, resulting in additional cost savings and reduced wait times in scheduling the rams for FS site testing and installations. Schletter believes in creating long-lasting partnerships with our clients, as well as providing a higher standard of service than what is typically offered in business-to-business relationships today."

In addition to the FS site testing, the tractor-trailers will be available to Schletter customers for product demonstrations, hands-on training, local workshops, ribbon cutting events and the like. The fully equipped tractor-trailers will be launched alongside the Helios 3D solar layout software for utility-scale system planning.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
