Engineering and fabrication for a fixed tilt ground mount system.
RBI Solar has supplied and installed solar mounting systems for 1.17MW photovoltaic solar array at Moravian Academy which is powering the school with clean solar energy since Nov 2012. RBI‘s proven ground mount solar solution was selected for this job. This system is designed to withstand 90mph wind speed and 30PSF snow loading.
This system is designed to withstand 90mph wind speed and 30PSF snow loading. There are many factors to consider when determining the suitable foundation design for solar panel installation. RBI Solar used the information in certified Geotechnical Reports and worked with the customer to design the most economical foundation for Moravian academy job. Driven post was the perfect solution for this job considering the topography and soil data. Where soil conditions permit, driven pile systems can be implemented with lower costs because once the area is ready, the pile driving can go quickly without the need to wait for weather or concrete set up. The lack of the concrete saves on materials and logistics, since the concrete does not have to be ordered, trucked in, or poured.
