Solar Frontier Modules Selected For 16 Projects In The Agriculture Segment By Staten Solar

Solar Frontier Modules will be installed in 16 Ag-solar projects in the Central Valley of California ranging in size up to 522 kW by Staten Solar.

Tokyo, April 18, 2016 - Solar Frontier, the world's largest CIS solar energy solutions provider, announced today that its CIS modules will be installed at sixteen (16) solar project sites ranging in size up to 522 kW by Staten Solar, a leading EPC provider in California. These solar PV systems will be located in Tulare and Kern Counties of California's Central Valley on farms that produce almonds, pistachios and table grapes.

Each project has unique characteristics requiring innovative construction techniques and designs including a mix of ground-mounted and Staten Solar's proprietary levee-mounted racking systems. These solar PV systems integrate cost effectively with the customer's existing facilities, environmental/land requirements, and business models to deliver high energy yields and provide reliable, long term performance. Solar Frontier modules were selected by Staten Solar for their advantageous performance in real-world conditions including high yields in hot temperatures and under partial shading. Three of the sixteen projects are currently operational with the balance expected to be completed by the end of 2016.
Charles Pimentel, COO of Solar Frontier Americas, said, "Staten Solar understands the challenges the agricultural communities face and utilizes their solar expertise in aggregated net metering, rate optimization, demand response, peak day pricing, and financing to deliver valuable energy solutions that help farmers reduce their monthly operating costs. We are pleased Solar Frontier modules were selected for these commercial agriculture solar energy projects."
"Staten Solar has been impressed with the quality, performance and customer service provided by Solar Frontier," said Staten Solar Chairman and Managing Director, Sandipan Bhanot. "Our customers expect us to recommend the best product for their needs and for the hot Central Valley - Solar Frontier panels are an excellent choice in terms of superior production and high performance in the field."

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
