The new MECASOLAR solar tracker is modular and scalable. In addition, it can be easily delivered and installed (assembled) at the location. -- It has 44 tilted axes on which an area of up to 7,855 sq ft (730 sq m) of PV panels can rotate. -- Increasing output by 30% as compared to a fixed mount system and reducing costs per Wp, it is the most competitive and profitable on the market. -- MECASOLAR will introduce the new product in these international conferences and exhibitions: SOLAR CANADA 2011 (December 5 and 6, Toronto) and INTERSOLAR India (December 14-16, Mumbai).

Eliminate Solar Rack Ballast and Reduce Rooftop Material Handling. PowerGrip™ Universal (PGU) is a commercial roof mount system designed to secure solar racks and other equipment to any type of commercial roofing system. PGU provides a secure connection directly to the roof deck or structural members and is designed to reduce or eliminate ballast in solar racking systems, so there's less weight on the roof and less material handling. Made of heavy-duty cast aluminum, PGU units include a base ring which is secured through the roofing cover and into the structural roof deck, and a waterproof top plate.
