New Mexico, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Unirac Inc. announced that they are now manufacturing products in Ontario, Canada, which meet all Ontario Power Authority local-content requirements. Locally manufactured residential and light commercial racking products are now available with commercial and utility racking products also available and shipping in late April.
This is Unirac’s direct response to Ontario’s feed-in tariff (FIT) and MicroFIT programs which took effect earlier this year.
“Canada is a growing market for solar energy due to the country’s proactive FIT and MicroFIT programs. We applaud Ontario Power Authority’s support of solar energy and programs that allow homeowners and business owners the opportunity to make a sound financial investment that is also environmentally responsible,” said Doug May, president and CEO of Unirac. “By manufacturing our mounting solutions locally, we adhere to the programs’ local content requirements, contribute to local economic growth, and provide Canadian customers access to our innovative line of products that are the building blocks for superior solar installations.”
Initial product offerings in Canada will include Unirac’s SolarMount, ISYS Ground Mount, and ISYS Roof Mount systems.
ISYS Ground Mount requires zero field fabrication—no welding, drilling, or cutting at the installation site, making it one of the fastest systems to install with consistent and repeatable installation steps.
ISYS Roof Mount is a flat roof solution that requires zero field fabrication, and can be installed at a rate of 2-3kW per man hour. The configurable design accommodates 0-30 degree module tilt and enables customers to maximize their project’s power production.
