United Solar, a global manufacturer of building rooftop photovoltaics under its UNI-SOLAR brand and a wholly owned subsidiary of Energy Conversion Devices, has signed a deal to install its newly released PowerTilt solar roof system at the Daimler Truck and Bus North America bus factory in Mississauga, Ontario.
This 435 kW project represents UNI-SOLAR's first PowerTilt installation in North America. The installation is expected to reach commercial operation before the end of this year. It will operate under the Canadian government's feed-in-tariff program through the Ontario Power Authority.
As the lightest rack-mounted solar system currently available in the marketplace, PowerTilt provides a lightweight, durable structure, ease of installation with no roof penetrations and lower levelized cost of electricity, according to United Solar.
