Solar FlexRack, a PV mounting and tracking manufacturer and a division of Northern States Metals, announced Tuesday that its G3-X smart fixed-tilt racking solution has been installed in the largest solar power generation project in Michigan. 

The 58MW utility-owned power plant is comprised of two PV systems located near the county seat of Lapeer and has been developed and managed by Inovateus Solar, a leading developer and EPC company.

The clean power projects were constructed by J. Ranck Electric, the top solar installer in the state.

Steve Daniel, EVP of Solar FlexRack, said: “We are pleased to have been selected for this milestone clean energy project in Michigan. The Inovateus Solar team is passionate about their work and brings their extensive experience to bear, delivering quality and reliability in the projects they develop.”

TJ Kanczuzewski, president of Inovateus, added: “We wanted a workhorse racking solution that met our quality standards and held up to the rigors of a large-scale installation such as this. Solar FlexRack's solution has exceeded our requirements.”

The installation of a utility-scale project of this scale is a landmark achievement for Michigan. With 5MW of solar capacity installed in 2015, Michigan ranked 33rd in the country in installed solar capacity according to the Solar Energy Industries Association.
