RPCS Shoals Array 2

All-In Install
RP Construction Services (RPCS) designs and builds ground-mount solar projects using Array Technologies’ DuraTrack HZ v3 single-axis tracker, completing over 225 projects in the United States. Building on that formula, RPCS just formed a partnership with solar balance of systems leader Shoals Technologies (Booth 1304) and CAB Solar (Booth 1854) for a turnkey product offering: the Plug-N-Play Solar Tracker system.

RPCS believes this solution, all-in, will reduce its project trenching by 50 percent, involve less specialized labor and require less time — all resulting in faster time to completion and CAPex savings. The Plug-N-Play Tracker approach also allows for more solar panels per string and fewer combiner boxes per site, cutting cost and solar electrical complications. Shoal’s patented wiring systems come pre-labeled and pre-tested. Shoals Technologies’ reliability and performance is backed by extensive in-house testing and rigorous quality controls, making them an ideal partner for RPCS’s next in line turnkey solution.

CAB Solar, the Cambria County Association for the Blind and Handicapped’s solar products division, pioneered the use of above ground cable management in grid-scale solar plants. The Integrated Grounding Cable Management System uses a copper composite messenger wire and specialized hardware for grounding and is safety listed by Intertek to UL 2703. Booth 1104
