Applied Energy Technologies (AET), a preferred supplier of utility-scale racking systems and one of the top 10 solar racking companies in the United States, and juwi Inc. (juwi), a leading renewable energy company based in Boulder, Colorado (US), have completed a 3.6MW solar installation project in Essex Junction, Vermont (US).
AET managed the installation of its Rayport-G ECO ground mount racking product on the 13-acre site, providing racking and foundation installation along with predrilling for post installation. AET also installed more than 11,000 solar modules on the racking system as part of its world class engineering, manufacturing and installation (EMI) service.
The rights to the project were sold by juwi to PSEG Solar Source last year, and juwi retained the roles of engineering, procurement and construction contractor and operator for the facility. The project, known as the PSEG Essex Solar Energy Center, has a 25-year power purchase agreement with Vermont Electric Power Producers. The solar arrays at the Vermont installation will generate enough energy to power more than 700 homes each year during normal usage times, and will be primarily used to support the local community.
The Rayport-G ECO is UL 2703 listed and is rapidly becoming an industry standard for developers and EPCs looking for a ground mounting system that is easy to install, scalable and delivers a significant savings on total installed costs. The Rayport-G ECO is strong and durable, having been engineered to withstand the most challenging environmental conditions, as well as being light and compact, allowing for high shipping density, significantly reducing freight costs and enabling easier handling on the job site.
