Unirac partners with Cobalt Power Systems to supply 397.5 kW Roof Mount (RM)

Second largest solar roof installation in Palo Alto

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., April 24, 2014

Unirac, Inc., a Hilti Group Company and the leading provider of high quality, competitive PV mounting solutions in North America, was selected by Cobalt Power Systems Inc. to provide a 397.5 kW Roof Mount (RM) mounting system recently installed at the Oshman Family JCC (OFJCC) campus, in Palo Alto, CA.

The installation, developed by THiNKnrg, is Palo Alto's second largest solar roof system and encompasses 1,840 solar panels on 12 buildings of the Taube Koret Campus for Jewish Life (TKCJL). Combined, the solar arrays will generate enough energy to offset approximately 9,500 tons of CO2 over the next 20 years; which is equivalent to removing 1,814 passenger cars from the road.

"These projects required a modular solution to accommodate the different layouts on the 12 roofs," said Daniel Hill, Director of Solar Design & Sales for Cobalt Power Systems. "RM was selected for its ease of design and installation around roof obstacles. RM has proven to be an intuitive product with a short learning curve, yielding faster installation rates than expected."

ROOF MOUNT introduces the Power of Simplicity to the ballasted, flat roof solar industry. The system consists of only two major components, minimizing preparation work and installation time. RM allows installers to seamlessly design around roof obstacles, support most framed modules and bond the system with just the turn of a wrench.

Cobalt procured RM from Gexpro, a Unirac Elite Partner. Unirac's partners have distinguished their level of customer support, availability, and overall value, thereby providing the highest level of service to installers.
