The RBI Solar next generation ground mount solution was specifically designed to make solar installation more affordable for commercial and utility-scale PV projects. This new model underwent a rigorous testing regimen for bonding and grounding to pass the UL 2703 Standard.
RBI Solar recently unveiled its latest solar racking system, the RBI Solar next generation ground mount solution, after it achieved ETL Classification from Intertek to UL Standard 2703. This new model underwent a rigorous testing regimen for bonding and grounding to pass the UL 2703 Standard, which became effective on July 28, 2016.
This new ground mount solution has multiple foundation designs to be compatible with a variety of site-specific soil and ground conditions. Structural components are also available to match wind and snow loads. All of these innovations are focused on reducing the overall cost of the racking system. The RBI Solar next generation ground mount solution is manufactured at one of the company's five locations and will begin shipping at the start of the second quarter of 2016.
As more building officials, jurisdictions, and inspectors become aware of UL 2703, solar racking system compliance is become essential for developers and EPC contractors. RBI Solar continuously tests for UL bonding and grounding compliance with different PV module manufacturers. This commitment to testing enables RBI Solar's customers to have confidence that the racking solutions they provide meet the codes and standard requirements even in the jurisdictions with highly stringent plan review processes.
"We're really excited about the potential of the RBI Solar next generation ground mount solution for our customers," said Bill Vietas, General Manager at RBI Solar. "The advancements to this system are going to provide even better return on investment for solar systems."
