Make sure your racking system for large-scale installations is the full package.

A good solar racking system for large-scale installations should have the following features:

  • Fewer Posts – Reduced number of posts leads to faster installation.
  • Self-grounded Utility – scale racking should be ETL classified to UL 2703.
  • Built-in Wire Management – This reduces the cost of wire management devices.
  • Pre-assembled – Fast on-site installation happens with pre-assembled components.
  • String Sizes – A good racking system should accommodate various string sizes.
  • Individual Design – Projects should be individually designed to meet local building code requirements.
  • Foundation Options – Different foundation options should be available to install the racking.
  • Total Cost – Racking cost should include all components including cost of design/complete engineering, posts, racks, mounting hardware, freight to the job site and installation of posts/racks.
  • Options – Often installation options offered by the racking manufacturer are economical, as they have highly skilled construction crews that install nothing but solar racking.
