It has been reported that 3 major solar training programs will be kickstarted by Renusol America for solar installers to keep up to date with the latest solar energy technology. The company has donated its popular Renusol CS60 mounting solution for hands-on-training purposes to solar installer lab classes at the Solar Energy International (SEI) training program in Colorado, the Boots on the Roof program in California and New Jersey, and the Solairgen program in Georgia.
"SEI is excited to demonstrate Renusol's CS60 ballast mount solution on our campus. We look forward to becoming intimately familiar with this new product and the advantages it may offer integrators such as reduced installation time and parts to handle on the roof. The fact it is made in the US from recycled materials shows their commitment to the US market and the potential environmental impacts that industry can have," said Solar Energy International PV Lab Manager Jeff Tobe.
"We are excited to introduce both experienced and new solar installers to the latest technology in roof mounting solutions, one that is changing the way solar PV arrays are deployed on flat rooftops by eliminating the layout restrictions inherent to traditional, rigid aluminum racking rails," said Renusol America CEO Bart Leusink.
"This is the future for flat roof solar racking systems, and we want to do our part in providing solar installers the opportunity to learn how they can save both time and money with the latest, most efficient systems," said Leusink.
Renusol America's CS60 is the first ever 'one unit per one PV panel' mounting unit for flat roof installations. It is a 100% recycled plastic-base---and is fully recyclable. It is the future so solar training in this is imperative.
The Renusol CS60 provides several solutions developed specifically for the US solar market. The pre-molded unit has fewer and lighter parts, which means less labor-intensive installations and more profitable business opportunities for solar installers.
The design of the CS60 incorporates the latest groundbreaking boundary layer wind tunnel study in accordance to ASCE 7-05 and, with its flexible panel layout possibilities; the system can address varying wind and load conditions across a rooftop.
The units were also designed with a specific aerodynamic shape and with the material strength needed to withstand the wide range of climatic conditions-extreme temperatures, ice and snow-- and other natural forces that exist across the U.S. They can either be ballasted or attached to the roof in areas where hurricanes/tornados and earthquakes pose a threat. The Renusol CS60 is engineered and made in America.
So if you need your skills brushing up get in touch with one of the solar training programs above.
