Applied Energy Technologies’ (AET) Solar Racking Selected by Pro-Tech Energy Solutions for 3.5 MW Rooftop Installation at AC Moore Distribution Center in NJ

AET’s Rayport-B ECO system selected for one of the nation’s largest rooftop installations

BERLIN, NJ. - October 29, 2015 - Applied Energy Technologies (AET), a preferred supplier of commercial and utility-scale racking systems and one of the top 10 solar racking companies in the United States, announces it was selected by Pro-Tech Energy Solutions to provide its Rayport-B ECO solar racking system for one of the nation's largest rooftop solar installations. The project is installed on a distribution warehouse and the corporate headquarters for AC Moore arts and crafts stores.


AC Moore, founded in NJ in 1985, operates arts and crafts superstores throughout the eastern U.S. The 11,232 panels, supplied by Trina, will bring power to the 750,000 sq. ft. distribution center which services its more than 140 stores, and houses the corporate office. SMA provided the inverters. Construction began in July.

"A rooftop project of this size requires extensive planning and precision," said Aaron Faust, VP of Business Development at AET. "Our Rayport™-B ECO roof ballast system met Pro-Tech's needs in terms of price and ease of installation for such a large project. Even though Pro-Tech is an established customer, the vetting process was competitive. Ultimately, AET provided the best overall value to Pro-Tech and AC Moore."

The Rayport- B ECO roof ballast system has one common bolt for all joints and panel clamps with integrated grounding. It is wind tunnel tested and UL 2703 listed. The system fits all major solar modules on the market and is available in a variety of panel configurations. The Rayport™-B ECO ships folded, significantly increasing packing density and reducing shipping cost.

"We are dedicated to providing our customers with the highest quality solar solutions to maximize their return on investment," said Jeff Hill, Project Executive at Pro-Tech. "We have worked with AET in the past and their cost-competitive and high quality racking systems optimize the power density and production for our customer."
