YOUNGSTOWN, OHIO — Construction has begun on the largest solar energy facility in the northeastern United States, and the patent-pending Solar FlexRack has been chosen for the project's rack-mounting hardware.
RMT, Inc., a leading renewable energy engineering and construction company, selected Solar FlexRack for their 18MW site currently under construction in Pilesgrove, New Jersey. Once completed, this will be the largest solar energy facility in the Northeastern U.S. The Pilesgrove project is a joint venture between Panda Power Fund and Con Edison Development. The 18MW facility will include over 71,000 solar PV panels and will create enough clean energy to power over 5,100 homes.
This unique pre-assembled, unfolding design of the Solar FlexRack makes it easy to install, and also allows it to be erected faster than any other competing product. The Solar FlexRack can be installed by a three-man crew in 5 minutes or less — whereas its nearest competitor estimates an installation time of 45 minutes with a six-man crew for each rack. The result: labor savings of as much as 40 percent.
