As solar photovoltaic module prices become more competitive, the BOS components and installation procedures and costs are becoming a focal point in the solar industry. There is a need for safe and effective solutions that are not only well engineered but code compliant and easily installed.
How can we make system installation easier, faster, and safer at the same time?
What must be considered when designing and managing a PV project in order to reduce install time, maximize ROI, and avoid permitting road-blocks along the way?
What codes and standards need to be abided by?
What load limitations need to be calculated?
Jean Arya, Technical Support Specialist at UNIRAC, will present a #SolarMOOC lecture this week in which she will address this issue, offering guidance as to what the current standards, codes, regulations and design requirements are for racking systems.
Unirac’s SolarMount Evolution is the first complete PV racking system to achieve acceptance by the International Code Council, who writes the International Building Code.
Jean Arya has worked in renewable energy and energy efficiency for twelve years, with the local electric utility; a retailer/distributor; and for the past four years in Tech Support at Unirac. She enjoys giving presentations, and trains within the company and for customers all over the country. Her specialty is explaining technical information to non-technical people.
