Solar racking company Applied Energy Technologies (AET) has expanded its ECO line of products and adapted its Rayport-B ECO rooftop ballast system for Prism Solar Technologies’ bifacial solar panels.
Prism selected AET to custom design a racking solution for its bifacial glass modules, which AET says generate up to 25% more energy per watt than traditional modules in flat rooftop applications by utilizing the light reflected from a white or reflective commercial rooftop surface.
“It’s our goal to grow with the industry as new technologies emerge,” explains Aaron Faust, AET’s vice president of business development. “Adapting our rooftop solution was a clear choice to provide customers with a reliable, cost-effective racking solution for bifacial panels.”
Jerry Hughes, director of sales and marketing at Prism, adds, “AET customized their system to realize the additional ‘backside gain’ for their customers who combine Prism modules with reflective rooftops. We are confident that the end result is a high-quality system that achieves the additional bifacial energy gain and is easy to install.”
