December 19, 2013


Washington, DC – Today, Michael Brower, ACORE's Interim President and CEO, released the following statement on Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus's new package of proposals to overhaul America's tax code:

"ACORE commends Chairman Baucus and the Senate Finance Committee for their continuing support of tax policy that encourages private sector investment in clean renewable electricity and fuels," explained Brower. "Chairman Baucus' discussion draft calls for an important long-term policy commitment to clean energy investment which is an essential element of a simplified tax code and continuing the progress the industry has made in harnessing our nation's abundant domestic renewable resources. Present renewable energy tax policies are effective, and they can be improved to channel even more capital into clean, American-made energy. We look forward to working with Senator Baucus and the Senate Finance team on advancing effective tax policy that leverages even more private investment and brings long-term certainty to the industry."

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?
