More and more homeowners are requesting battery backup solutions as part of their solar power installations. With increased adoption of solar power, concerns about fire hazards are likely to grow. Are these concerns justified?
Many homes that use deep-cycle batteries as part of their renewable energy or off-grid power system's energy storage, are often strained to maximum capacity levels. The result is sets of batteries that don't seem to last as long as they used to.
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.
