Hurricane Maria's devastating impact on Puerto Rico left the commonwealth's power supply crippled, losing nearly 65% of above-ground cabling. A complete rebuild of the already aged and inefficient infrastructure is unlikely. With this in mind, OutBack has partnered with local distributors Glenn International and Warren Del Caribe to bring off-grid and battery-based solar training opportunities to the area. Offering training on these energy storage solutions will assist solar installers and others to more readily offer power solutions for entire homes and businesses - with the grid, or entirely without - enabling customers' safety and power independence.

"This is our most important trip to Puerto Rico since Hurricane Maria," said John Webber, International Business Development Manager. "We are looking forward to sharing our 17 years of off-grid and battery-based systems knowledge with local installers. We believe this is the path to the island's recovery and an insurance policy against the crippling impact of future weather events."

OutBack's training will focus on an introduction to battery-based solar power and the unique energy resiliency offered by these systems. The Energy Express tour will showcase OutBack's complete solutions including the Radian and FXR inverters in a pre-wired package that can include traditional or advanced batteries, like nano-carbon lead acid or Simpliphi lithium batteries.

The OutBack Energy Express Tour in Puerto Rico will last from May 7th to May 18th with scheduled stops in San Juan, Ponce, and more! Visit http://www.outbackpower.com/resources/training/energy-express for dates and locations.

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?
