RBI Solar's ballast racking solutions are perfect for municipal solid waste landfills, brownfields and other sites where non-penetrable solutions are needed. RBI Solar’s durable and non-penetrating ballasted racking solutions are custom designed to your site-specific conditions. Whether it is a commercial solar system or a large-scale solar energy farm, RBI Solar’s ballast landfill solar racking solutions are as flexible as you want them to be. The GS60 ballast, eliminates the need for additional racking component installation and can mount all common 72-cell modules. The concrete ballast foundations can accommodate any type of module mounting.
With municipalities and landfill owners seeking innovative ways to generate revenue from undeveloped landfill space, developing solar photovoltaic systems on these sites creates a win-win situation. RBI Solar’s non-penetrating and light weight ballasts, and are custom engineered to specific site conditions. Our engineers and designers consider important parameters of landfills like static and dynamic settlements, cap characteristics, slope, and stability before designing a reliable and cost-effective landfill solution to suit the needs of your project. And, as the landfill settles over the next few years, the components of our solar racking systems can be configured in response to these changes.
Precast ballast are designed and engineered per project specifications. The racking system is mechanically attached to the precast concrete foundation to allow for easy disassembly for future maintenance on landfill caps. Option for pre-assembled post foundations at the precasters facility will reduce the amount of on-site field connections reducing installation labor time and costs.
Forms are customized and supplied by RBI Solar per project as specified by the engineered project specifications. Once concrete mix has cured, the racking system is mechanically attached to the concrete ballast block foundations to allow for easy disassembly for future maintenance on landfill caps.
GS is a one piece, non-penetrating solar mounting system available in 10 degree tilt. Made from 100% recycled high molecular weight polyethylene (HMWPE), this innovative ballasted system requires no grounding because it is made of non-conductive material. One solar PV module mounts directly to a GS base with no complex assembly required. Thanks to the simplicity and durability of this racking system, installation time and overall project costs are reduced.
