February 16, 2012 ― Tucson, Arizona Schletter, a market leader in ground mount solar PV mounting systems, introduces a new product for residential and small commercial solar applications, the 2.5 kW FS Kit™.

With 5 GW installed globally, and counting, the FS System is used in some of the world's largest, most robust ground mount installations. The new FS Kit utilizes the same quality system, just on a smaller scale. The FS Kit includes all the mounting hardware needed to install the mounting structure as well as value-added benefits including ETL Classified grounding to UL 2703/UL1703 standards, PE stamped permitting package for most states with engineered performance meeting USB engineered to IBC 2006/2009 and the Ontario Building Code where applicable.

"The FS Kit is a direct result of customer feedback," says Ian McCollum, Director of Inside-Sales for Schletter Inc. Mr. McCollum goes on to say that "When customers call before noon, the order will ship the same day. Add the engineering and drawing package and the customers will have a robust system quickly. The FS System is the first complete ground mount system to meet UL 2703 and UL 1703 standards, which is yet another benefit to this package."

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?
