With engineering improvements and better installation techniques making trackers more robust and adaptable, the next stage in tracker evolution will center around controls and software.
"I wanted my customers to see the product up close for themselves, not just view an iPad demo," he said. "So, I built a tiny house using plexiglass and mounted RT-MINI II on the roof."
By combining onsite generation, an advanced energy storage system and a world-class artificial intelligence-powered analytics platform, SCA optimizes energy usage by automatically switching between onsite generation, battery power and grid power.
There's a goldmine of solar installations out there waiting to be claimed. Adaptable teams could take advantage of the gap in the market and open an entirely new line of income for their businesses if they only looked a bit further than they are currently.
Solar client SunCommon engaged Terrasmart to build two surface lot canopies for Alchemist Brewery, a craft brewing company catering to the tourism industry in Stowe, Vermont. The project had to be optimized for the region's rough weather.
Understanding what to expect at the beginning of the construction and knowing how to navigate potential challenges, or how to avoid them altogether, could greatly boost the performance of the solar park, as well as reduce expenses.
When installing a solar array, having a coverboard as part of the roofing assembly is a best practice. As such, most manufacturers of solar mounts test and evaluate their mechanical attachment products with a coverboard over polyisocyanurate (polyiso) insulation.
The club is located on a private peninsula, bound on three sides by water and on the fourth side by federal and state lands. The area is subject to 180 mph, Category 5 hurricane winds, making installation of a low-profile, roof-mounted system essential.
Another new product we're excited about is our EPDM Conduit Mount for Asphalt Shingle, EPDM & TPO roofs. This mount offers great flexibility in bundling cables and wires. It is also a deck mounted product, so skip the rafters and install anywhere on the roof.
MetalX is a direct-attach system for all metal roof types that uses a groundbreaking floating coupler to join row modules at their corners, increasing spans and reducing attachments.
The process of installing passive flashing components requires disruption of the roof shingles which can inadvertently cause further damage and potential leaks. We've taken the approach of why tear up a perfectly good roofing system to install something over the top of it.
Elevating the PV panels on rooftops would reduce shadowing from adjacent properties and maximize power generation, and was therefore more favorable to achieve reliable and consistent system performance.
The PVKIT's pre-assembled components provided a simple, secure and economical method for attaching the solar panels. Because the solution is rail-less, it also cuts costs in freight, logistics, lifting equipment and labor associated with traditional rail.
The challenge was to find a cost-effective PV solution that presented an ROI, which would make the project a no-brainer from a financial standpoint.
Metal roofs are known for their durability, sustainability and versatility and are increasing in popularity in the solar marketplace.
