US-based Applied Energy Technologies (AET) has expanded and modified its ECO line of products to accommodate east/west orientation of PV modules to maximize PV production and increase array density on the rooftop.

Problem

PV system design has been constrained by conventional racking systems designed for south facing orientation that can limit the size and density of deployed systems on buildings with non-optimum sun orientation.

Solution

AET’s ‘Rayport-B’ ECO East-West System provides an east/west orientation to maximize PV production and increase array density on the rooftop. East to west orientation provides advantages for PV power production with a dynamic grid. With greater array density, the system provides dual exposure during peak PV production times. The Rayport-B ECO East-West System, like its family of ECO products, is constructed from galvanized steel. It has one common bolt for all joints and has panel clamps with integrated grounding. The Rayport-B ECO System is wind tunnel tested, UL 2703 listed and comes with a 25-year limited warranty.

Applications

PV racking system for rooftop applications requiring compact east/west orientation.

Platform

The Rayport-B ECO is wind tunnel tested; UL 2703 listed and comes with a 25-year limited warranty. It fits all major solar modules on the market and is available in a variety of panel configurations.

Availability

May 2016 onwards.
