DFC power plants electrochemically convert a fuel source into electricity
and heat in a highly efficient process that emits virtually no pollutants
due to the absence of combustion. DFC power plants are fuel flexible,
capable of operating on natural gas or renewable biogas.
Efficiency of up to 90 percent can be achieved when the DFC plant is
configured for combined heat and power (CHP). High efficiency reduces fuel
costs and carbon emissions, and producing both electricity and heat from the
same unit of fuel can reduce the use of combustion based boilers used for
heating, further reducing costs and pollutants.

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?
