Applied Energy Technologies (AET) has supplied its Rayport-G ECO racking system to REC Solar for a 2 MW solar project in Vermont.
The system consists of more than 15,000 posts and more than 8,000 modules.
‘The site provided some unique challenges, and we worked closely with our customer to ensure the system would meet their specifications,’ says Aaron Faust, AET's vice president of business development. ‘Prior to installation, AET reviewed the site's topography by looking at soil samples and also conducted in-depth pull-testing, which involves driving posts into select locations. This proactive process revealed that longer posts would only be needed for a portion of the site, resulting in a saving of two feet per post in the majority of the site.’
